Rough night for levies in Southwest Ohio

Posted by Trina Kinstler - email

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) --  Tuesday was election night, at least for a few people in the Tri-state.

  • In Hamilton County, a fire levy in Harrison breezed to an easy victory.
  • In Clermont County, there were two issues: the Goshen Township Safety Services Levy lost by a large margin and and a Batavia Local School District bond issue went down in a landslide.
  • Warren county had five issues: Mason Fire Tax Levy (Renewal) for 5 years; Mason Fire Tax Levy (Additional) for 5 years;  Waynesville Police Tax Levy (Replacement and Increase) for 5 tears; Waynesville Street/Road Tax Levy for 5 years; and Springboro Community City School Incremental Tax Levy.  The Mason renewal passed, but all the others failed.  The Waynesville Police levy lost by only 13 votes, and the Waynesville road levy lost by only four votes (274 to 278), making it eligible for an automatic recount.
