WARREN -- Voters in three Trumbull County communities approved what amount to four separate taxes that will increase their bills.
For residents in Brookfield and Champion, the approval of police and fire department levies mean hundreds of dollars more, and in Hartford, it's about $70.
Voters in other parts of the county weren't as generous on Election Day, rejecting requests for more money for roads in Liberty and cemeteries in Newton Township. Also, voters in Newton Falls rejected an attempt to raise the village's income tax by 0.35 percent. And not one attempt by a school district for additional money was approved.
Renewal attempts fared much better. In fact, voters agreed to continue to fund all the renewal requests on the ballot.
All of the amounts provided below are based on a taxpayer who owns a home worth $100,000. Also, the numbers are estimates. The actual amounts won't be determined until December and the amounts do not include the rollbacks available to property owners.
In addition, the amounts in Brookfield and in Champion include school levies voters approved in May.
