Clark County Voters Approve Parks Levy

Clark County voters approved a sixth-tenths mill parks levy on Tuesday, as unofficial results show the levy passed with 57% of the vote.

The levy was an attempt to generate money to fund maintenance of green space, parks and bike trails throughout Clark County.  The parks levy will generate annually $1 million for the National Trail and Parks Recreation District and the Clark County Parks District, the two groups responsible for the maintenance of the parks in Clark County.

The levy will cost the owner of a $100,000 home $21 per year.

Issue 3 wins in Ohio

While Ohioans overwhelmingly rejected Issue two, the limits on collective bargaining, they overwhelmingly endorsed issue three. Ohio Public Radio’s Jo Ingles reports.

Dale Butland with Innovation Ohio… says now that voters have passed issue three, they will soon begin to see they’ve been sold something for which they didn’t bargain.

"When the taxpayers learn that they're on the hook for millions of dollars in unnecessary lawsuits and legal expenses, the Republican officials who endorsed this amendment for purely political reasons will be unmasked," says Butand.

Originally published on Thu November 10, 2011 8:44 am



Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep. The holiday season will apparently be a good one for pets. A survey finds most pet owners plan to buy their pets a gift. We're not sure what this means for the economy, but people are spending more. They're budgeting $46 - up $5 from last year. Hopefully, a dog named Echo in Hawaii is not listening, since the owner says her dog is getting a toy for Christmas, and her husband is getting a shirt from the dog.
