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.

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - An Ohio program that cleans up after abandoned coal mines plans to undertake 53 projects next year, nearly three times as many as in 2007.
The Columbus Dispatch reports Monday that the work to restore land and streams is being expanded thanks to more federal money. A change in the formula for dividing coal company taxes among the states has increased Ohio's share, from $7.5 million in 2007 to $18.4 million for next year.
