Harrison County is asking voters for an additional 0.75 mills to support its 911 system. The village of New Athens, meanwhile, wants and additional 1 mill for current expenses for 5 years. Other communities are seeking to replace existing levies with current taxation levels.

Cadiz Township is seeking replacement of two levies for maintenance at the Cadiz Union Cemetery - one for 0.44 mills and the second for 1 mill. Cadiz Township also is asking voters to replace a 1-mill levy for firefighting equipment.
