Tuesday was a good day for tax renewal ballot issues in Hamilton County.

A $65 million, 10-year renewal of an operating levy for Cincinnati Public Schools was headed toward an easy win in Tuesday's voting. With 34% of the school district's 232 precincts reporting, the school levy was passing with 73% of the unofficial vote count.

There were two other countywide tax levies on Tuesday's ballot that will not raise taxes. One was a renewal for Hamilton County's Family Services, which had 72% of the vote, and a second for services for the developmentally disabled, which had 76% of the vote.
