Cincinnati City Council is making a request for Hamilton County officials to release the number of minority and local businesses hired to work on Paul Brown Stadium.
Several council members raised concerns during Wednesday's weekly meeting that the county -- overseeing construction of the riverfront football arena -- is not in compliance with a city-county deal.
The deal outlined a number of agreements, including a pledge to hire local contractors and increase minority participation -- specifically attempting to boost the African-American participation to at least 15 percent.
If council is unable to obtain the information, the city will file a formal records request, according to a motion approved by all members of council.
That information could help determine whether the county is in compliance with the agreement, and whether the city needs to take action to ensure all parties are in compliance.
