Decision Time for Tax Issues Governments across Northeast Ohio are seeking tax hikes or levy renewals to continue delivering services. Will the public be willing to pony up? Monday on The Sound of Ideas we'll talk about tax requests to fund the Cleveland Metroparks and another for parks in Canton, a request from Cleveland's port to renew its public subsidy and a plea for more money to cover health and human services in Cuyahoga County.
