Cincinnati Mayor John Cranley says his government will take on a larger share of the cost of maintaining the historic Union Terminal and Music Hall.

Cranley says the city will pay 400 thousand dollars a year for the next 25 years to maintain the buildings.  It amounts to another ten-million-dollars on top of the ten-million Cincinnati was already kicking in to renovate the landmarks. But Cranley opposes a proposal by Hamilton County officials to raise the county sales tax to fund rennovation work.
