Miamisburg’s $69 million water and sewer master plan may fall under the purview of a contracted firm after the resignation of the project manager in the midst of the city’s five-year infrastructure upgrades.
A proposal before Miamisburg City Council on Tuesday night would give a local engineering company oversight of the citywide improvements, which are being paid for by annual rate hikes that have drawn criticism in recent months.
The December resignation of Project Manager Steve Morrison prompted city administrators to propose Barge, Waggoner, Sumner and Cannon assume management of the water and sewer upgrades.

LOS ANGELES — Christina Aguilera was the latest singer to join “The Late Late Show” host James Corden on his series, “Carpool Karaoke.”
During Corden’s third prime-time special, the singer chatted about her time in “The New Mickey Mouse Club” and sang a few of her hits.
Most songs came from Aguilera’s 2002 album “Stripped,” including “Fighter,” “Dirrty” and “Beautiful.”
At one point, comedian Melissa McCarthy pops up in the back seat of the car to spit Redman’s rap verse in “Dirrty.”
Aguilera also gives Corden and McCarthy diva and vocal coaching.

BUTLER COUNTY — The sixth day of the Michael Grevious II death penalty trial in Hamilton began with the replacement of a juror.
Grevious, 25, of Hamilton, is facing the death penalty if found guilty of aggravated murder for allegedly ordering a retaliation shooting at Central Avenue and Knightsbridge on Aug. 3, 2016 that killed two people. He is also charged with having weapons under disability and felonious assault for gun violence that killed his relative during the early morning hours of July 24, 2016 at a Hamilton bar.
The trial began April 16 in Butler County Common Pleas Judge Greg Stephens’ courtroom with jury selection lasting two days.
Court was delayed Tuesday morning, and when the jury filed in, one female juror was missing. That juror was replaced with one of four alternates who has been seated in the courtroom since the trial began.
Outside the presence of the jury, Stephens said the juror excused had a conflict “that ultimately would have prevented her from following the law as it relates to the consideration of the death penalty.”
The prosecution is continuing to present its case against Grevious.

DETROIT — More than a dozen tractor-trailers formed a line under an overpass on Interstate 696 in Detroit early Tuesday to help stop a man who was contemplating jumping from the overpass, according to multiple reports.
Authorities were called to I-696 near the Coolidge exit just before 1 a.m., WJBK reported. Negotiators worked for several hours to convince the man not to jump as authorities directed several tractor-trailers to park under the overpass, according to the news station.
Michigan State Police shared an image of 13 tractor-trailers that were lined up side-by-side on the interstate, in case the man jumped.
“This photo does show the work troopers and local officers do to serve the public,” police said Tuesday on Twitter. “But also in that photo is a man struggling with the decision to take his own life.”
