Contaminated properties ignored for more than a decade

Sharon Coolidge of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports that a "review of city health records found that 55 of the 268 properties identified as having lead hazards have been on the city's books since before 1999. Yet the properties have not been cleaned and the owners have not been prosecuted." Families have continued to move into these properties without proper warning or safety instruction.  City records reflecting the number of children living in these properties were found to be inaccurate.
