Early results — Voters strike down Clinton ballot measures

CLINTON — With a resounding "No," Clinton voters struck down Propositions E and F, on Tuesday — both measures receiving less than 40 percent in favor.

Voting 60.28 percent "no," voters turned down a measure to reallocate the portion of the local options sales tax dedicated to property tax relief to sewer and street construction and reconstruction.

If the voters had approved Proposition E, it would have allowed the city to use $1.5 million of LOST revenue for sewer work while using the remaining $1.5 million to continue the city’s pavement management program.

Because voters turned down the measure, the pavement management program has no funding source.

Voters were more emphatic with Proposition F, with 74.17 percent voting against the Capital Program Tax. The capital improvements tax levy would have added 0.675 cents per $1,000 of taxable value for 25 years.

Over 3,500 people voted on both resolutions with 757 votes coming absentee.
