CINCINNATI -- Ohio residents will have their voices heard Tuesday as special elections are held.

In the Cincinnati area there are several choices voters will be making.

Norwood residents will decide on a levy that will cost the owner of a $100,000 home an extra $30 per year. The levy would go toward health and current expenses for the city for the next five years.

Some of the more costly tax levies are in Arlington Heights and the Village of Cleves.

Cleves is floating a five-year 3.9 mill levy that would cost the owner of a $100,000 home an extra $117 but would generate more than $200,000 per year according to the Hamilton County Auditor.

The Arlington Heights levy would add an additional 8 mill for five years. It would generate about $97,600 per year but cost an extra $241 for a $100,000 home.

In Warren County, three more communities will decide on some new levies.

Deerfield Township is considering a replacement levy for police and emergency services that would generate 4 mills. It would cost the owner of a $100,000 home about $47.64.

One of the most expensive levies will be for the Franklin City School District. The 7.92 mills levy would cost an extra $242.55 for a $100,000 home but is estimated to generate $3,990,481.

In Lebanon, voters will decide whether to renew a Lebanon City School District levy. It is estimated to generate an estimated $1,180,670 and would come with no increased costs.

Polls will be open from 6:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. More information can be found at http://boe.hamilton-co.org/ and http://www.warrencountyboe.us/ .
