Taylor County School District will not collect an extra nickel tax for school construction after all.
Voters said no to the tax in Tuesday's special election with 2,276 voting "Against" the tax and 2,144 voting "For" the tax.
As the votes were tallied Tuesday night at the Taylor County Courthouse, the margin of victory was slim, often by just a handful of votes. Results from the first few precincts showed the "For" votes pulling ahead. But as the final precincts came in, the "Against" votes steadily took over.
