CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - Cincinnati residents will soon have to pay more in property taxes.

The plan, passed by City Council on Wednesday, will cost the owner of a $100,000 dollar home about $31 extra each year.

It will raise an extra $7 million each year, which will be used to fund the replacement of the Western Hills Viaduct and facilities for firefighters.
