Metro Parks commissioners voted July 10 to place a 10-year, 0.95-mill levy on the Nov. 6 general-election ballot for Franklin County.

If approved, the tax would cost the owner of a $100,000 house in Franklin County $33.25 a year beginning in 2020.

That would be an increase of $12.82 from the $20.43 that the owners of that $100,000 property are paying under the current 10-year, 0.75-mill levy.

Voters approved that measure in May 2009; it expires at the end of next year.

Metro Parks' annual revenue would increase from $22.6 million to $28.6 million if voters approve the new levy. Parks officials have said they want to boost programs for children, senior citizens and people with special needs, as well as develop new parks and add 100 miles to the greenways system.

Although Metro Parks includes areas in Delaware, Union, Fairfield and Hocking counties, only Franklin County residents will vote on the measure.

The park board also accepted $2.25 million from the state to apply to the 220-acre Quarry Trails Metro Park west of Upper Arlington.
