Voters Soundly Reject New Spending

Voters in Butler County voted no on two public measures Tuesday. The first public measure would have provided funds to construct, furnish and equip an athletic competition facility as well as remodeling, repairing, furnishing, and equipping existing facilities. It needed 60% of the votes to pass, however it garnered just over 20% of the vote. The measure to raise taxes also failed by roughly the same percentage.
