Fayette County voters on Tuesday overwhelmingly rejected a 1-percent sales tax that would benefit school districts in the county.
Unofficial vote totals in the office of Fayette County Clerk and Recorder Terri D. Braun show that 58 percent of those going to the polls on Tuesday voted against the school tax. The unofficial vote total was 1,641-no and 1,166-yes.
Vandalia School District officials hoped to use funds generated by the sales tax to abate bonds and lower the property taxes of residents of the district.
