All renewal levies for schools, such as Brookville and Kettering, and cities such as Huber Heights and Brookville passed. Northridge Local School District got an OK from voters for its proposed bond levy.

Schools in Greene County also had no problem with approvals for renewal levies. Voters said yes to operating funds for Xenia, Yellow Springs, Beavercreek and Bellbrook-Sugarcreek schools. Voters also approved levies in Spring Valley and Cedarville.

The only local levy that failed yesterday was for the Warren County Career Center.

Clark County

Twelve percent of registered voters turned out on election day in Clark County to decide several tax issues and a contested race for municipal judge.

Final unofficial results show that 64 percent of the voters casting a ballot approved a renewal levy for the Springfield City Schools, which will generate more than $3 million annually for the district.

And 53 percent of the voters said yes to a one percent 10-year earned income tax that will generate more than $4 million annually for the Northeastern Local School District.

In New Carlisle, 57 percent of the voters were in favor of new money for police services. The half percent income tax will bring in $500,000 to provide additional deputies for the town.

With 64 percent of the vote, Daniel Carey won the contested Republican primary for Municipal Court judge over Brian Driscoll. Both men are Clark County assistant prosecutors. Carey will now face Democratic incumbent Eugene Nevius in November’s general election.
