Other school levies in May

While four area school districts are asking voters for money to build or renovate schools, five other districts are seeking tax increases for daily operating expenses.

•Mount Healthy Schools in Hamilton County: 6.95-mill continuing operating levy that would raise $2.2 million annually. It would cost the owner of a $100,000 home an extra $213 a year.

•Fairfield Schools in Butler County: 2-mill permanent improvement replacement levy to bring in $2 million for maintenance each of the next five years. It would increase taxes on a $100,000 house about $45 a year.

•Milford Schools in Clermont County: 5.9-mill operating levy that would generate $4.7 million a year and cost the owner of a $100,000 house an extra $180 a year.

•Wayne Township Schools in Warren County: 10-mill emergency operating levy that replaces three expiring levies and adds 4.85 mills, to raise $1.5 million a year. It would cost the owner of a $100,000 house an additional $148 a year.

•Carlisle Schools in Warren County: 1 percent income tax expected to generate $1.4 million a year for operations.
