LISBON - Six of the eight property tax issues on the May 7 primary election will raises taxes if approved.

Following is a list of those issues:

- Center Township: Trustees are seeking approval of a new 1.23-mill fire levy that would raise taxes by $37 for the owner of a $100,000 home.

- Columbiana school district: The school board is asking voters to approve a new 1.23-mill bond issue that would raise taxes $37 for the owner of a $100,000 home.

- Knox Township: Trustees are seeking approval of a new 1.5-mill road that would raise taxes by $45 a year for the owner of a $100,000 home.

- New Waterford: Council is seeking approval of an existing operating levy but as a replacement levy and at a higher millage, which would result in a tax increase of $76 for the owner of a $100,000 home, bringing the total to $122.

- Salineville: Council is seeking voter approval of a new 3-mill police levy that would raise taxes by $91 a year for the owner of a $100,000 home.

- United Local school district: The board is seeking voter approval of a new 3-mill permanent improvement levy that would raise taxes by $91 a year for the owner of a $100,000 home.

The two issues that would not raise taxes:

- Perry Township: Trustees are seeking renewal of a 1.5-mill police and fire levy, which would not raise taxes. The owner of a $100,000 home currently pays $45 in taxes on the levy.

- Salem school district: The board is seeking renewal of a 2-mill permanent improvement levy, which would not raise taxes. The owner of a $100,000 home currently pays $29 in taxes on the levy.
