Cuyahoga County voters face a batch of government agencies with their hands out for property tax dollars on the November ballot.

There's the Health and Human Services Levy, the Port Levy renewal, a Cleveland Library issue and numerous school levies.

One of the biggest requests is coming from the Cleveland Metroparks. It's Issue 80 -- a 10-year levy proposal would bring in $75 million per year.

It would increase tax on a $200,000 home from $128 to $188 per year.

Metroparks have ambitious plans to improve Cleveland's lakefront parkts and other initiatives to upgrade the Emerald Necklace.

Russ Mitchell, in for Tom Beres, joins Channel 3 Political Analysts Mary Anne Sharkey and Dennis Eckart discussing the Metroparks levy with Metroparks CEO Brian Zimmerman on this edition of Between the Lines.
