Grandview Heights voters will have a light agenda on Tuesday's ballot.

Grandview Heights voters will have a light agenda on Tuesday's ballot.

The only local measure on the ballot will be Issue 3, the city of Grandview's three-year renewal of its 8.3-mill property tax levy.

The current three-year property tax levy will expire at the end of this year. If approved, the three-year renewal would go into effect on Jan. 1, 2010.

Property taxes in Grandview will remain the same if the levy is renewed.

According to the Franklin County Auditor's office, the average home in Grandview has an appraised value of $240,726, Grandview City Council member Susan Jagers said. The owner of a home with that appraised value will continue to pay an annual property tax of $338.88 to the city if the levy renewal passes.

The property tax provides about 20 percent of the city's revenue and brings in about $1.8-million each year.

The tax revenue is used to pay for basic city services, including police, fire, trash collection, street maintenance and parks and recreation programs.

Although the property tax levy was originally passed at 8.3 mills, it is now being collected at an effective rate of about 4.59 mills, due to increased property values in the city.

Literature about the levy is being distributed to every home in Grandview during the last two weekends before the election, Jagers said. Yard signs have also been distributed to levy supporters.
