Hamilton Co. levy would support parks
Hamilton County voters will be asked to tax themselves on the May ballot to maintain the county's park system.
If approved by a majority of voters, the 15-year, 1-mill tax would cost the owner of a $100,000 home $12.54 per year. The park levy was last approved in 1988.
Levy funds would be used to preserve hillsides and flood plains; continue providing outdoor recreation and nature education; and establish cooperative agreements and partnerships with public authorities to preserve greenspace.
