Saving the East End from slipping into the Ohio River is going to come at a cost -- another $10.5 million for the time being. The city has already spent $10 million constructing a 1,200-foot-long retaining wall to protect homes, buildings, and water, sewer and utility lines under Riverside Drive between Vance and Hazen streets. At City Council’s neighborhoods committee meeting Wednesday morning, city leaders said they’re working on a cost-sharing method to ease taxpayer dollars and construct phase two of the wall both east and west of the finished portion.
