Graham said the tool will likely be available for about 30 days following election day, then it will be brought back in time for the November election.
Voters in several Greene County communities will see either new tax proposals or renewals on the May 7 ballot.
Bellbrook-Sugarcreek schools is seeking a 7.5-mill replacement levy that would generate about $4.12 million a year, according to the auditor’s office.
The school board opted to go for the levy to maintain the district’s current operations and avoid a $3 million deficit in the near future, according to Doug Cozad, Bellbrook-Sugarcreek schools superintendent.
The Bellbrook-Sugarcreek community has seen a recent boom in housing developments, with hundreds of new homes being built or planned along Upper Bellbrook, Little Sugarcreek and Swigart roads. Another proposed development on Wilmington-Dayton Road has not yet been approved by township trustees.
“We are getting full at our schools. We are not at capacity yet. That’s something obviously we’re keeping a close eye on,” Cozad said. “These funds are all for current operating expenses just to continue the great things we’re already doing.”
Voters in Beavercreek will see two school levies, and tax issues to support parks and recreation and road maintenance.
The two school levies are a new 6.15-mill operating levy and a renewal on a permanent improvement levy. The parks and recreation levy is a 0.9-mill renewal with a 0.3-mill increase and streets levy is a 2-mill renewal, according to the auditor’s office.

According to the auditor’s tax estimator, if all the Beavercreek levies are approved the overall increase in property taxes for a home valued at approximately $174,000 would be a little more than $393.
Other tax issues that will appear on the May 7 ballot include a 3.5-mill renewal for Xenia voters to support city operating expenses, a new 1.8-mill police levy in Jamestown, and a 6.9-mill renewal for Kettering school voters.
