A number of partners are continuing their work to update the 2002 Cincinnati Cooperation Agreement. This is not necessarily the first obstacle to collaborative updating. April 2007: the Memorandum of Understanding between the city and the Ministry of Justice ends; However, the City has agreed to an additional year of follow-up on problem-solving efforts.
