Dublin residents will decide races for school board and city council Tuesday, although all the council candidates are running unopposed.

The board of education has four candidates running for three seats. Incumbents Gwen Callender, Stu Harris and Lynn May are facing newcomer Aaron Moore.

All three incumbents are seeking a second term on the five-member school board. Moore is a 20-year-old Jerome High School graduate who is a student at Wittenberg University.

On city council, incumbents Cathy Boring, Tim Lecklider, John Reiner and Amy Salay will retain their seats.

Washington Township trustees Denise Frantz King and Charles Kranstuber also are running unopposed.

In Concord Township, five people are running for two seats on the board of trustees. Incumbent Bart Johnson will face Joe Garrett, Thomas Lasher, Todd Poole and David Zorn.

In Franklin County, residents will vote on Issue 4, a levy for Franklin County Children Services.

The agency is asking voters to approve a 10-year, 3.1-mill replacement levy. It currently has two property levies on the books; a 3.15-mill levy approved by voters in 1999 will expire this year.

The expiring levy accounts for about a third of the agency's operating budget. If approved by voters Tuesday, the funds generated by the levy will go into the general fund to pay for current operations.

The levy would be collected beginning in January and cost homeowners $95 for every $100,000 of assessed property value, or $28.48 a year more than homeowners now pay.

Columbus residents will vote Tuesday on three seats for city council.

Democratic incumbents A. Troy Miller, Eileen Paley and Priscilla Tyson are opposed by Republicans Matt Ferris, Alicia Healy and Roseann Hicks, as well as Joe Motil, who is running as an independent write-in.

All voters in Ohio will weigh in on three issues:

Issue 1 would authorize the issuing of up to $200-million in bonds to provide compensation to Ohio veterans of the Persian Gulf, Afghanistan and Iraq conflicts, or to certain survivors of service members who are killed, designated as missing in action or held in captivity.

Issue 2 would create a Livestock Care Standards Board that would set rules for the treatment of farm animals to "endeavor to maintain food safety, encourage locally grown and raised food, and protect Ohio farms and families," according to the Ohio secretary of state's Web site.

Issue 3 would permit gambling casinos in the state's four biggest cities -- Cincinnati, Cleveland, Columbus and Toledo -- with their gross revenues taxed at a rate of 33 percent.
