In addition to Columbus City Schools' increasingly contentious tax issue, three suburban other Franklin County districts also have levy proposals on the ballot Nov. 7.

Catch up quick: Here's a list, including how much the levies would cost homeowners in yearly property taxes if they're approved.

Of note: The figures are for every $100,000 of appraised home value and take into account impending reappraisals, per the Franklin County Auditor's Office.

Canal Winchester

  • A five-year levy to generate $6.8 million annually for operations.
  • It would cost $253, replacing an existing tax expiring in 2024 that costs $357.

Dublin

The single measure includes two different, new taxes.

  • A continuing levy would generate $34.2 million annually for operations and cost property owners $219 more.
  • Plus, a 30-year facility bond issue would generate $145 million, and cost $55 more. It would fund construction of a 15th elementary school and a preschool expansion, to accommodate growing enrollment.

Groveport Madison

  • A continuing levy to generate $6.3 million annually for operations.
  • It would cost $105, replacing an existing tax expiring in 2024 that costs $170.
