Great Parks of Hamilton County will ask voters in November to add to the property taxes they pay for county parks. The board in July approved a resolution to place a 10-year, 0.95 mill levy on the ballot that would fund approximately 76% of the critical infrastructure needs and approximately 56% of park improvements. For the homeowner of a $100,000 house, it's an additional cost of $33 per year on top of the current park levy of $30 per year.

Joining Cincinnati Edition to discuss the future funding plan is Great Parks of Hamilton County CEO Todd Palmeter.
