Most tax questions on ballots fail

By Tom Weber, KWMU

St. Louis, MO – Voters in a handful of local elections were not very giving on Tuesday.

They rejected five fire districts in St. Louis County who were asking for more money.

A sales tax question in Jennings did pass. But a sales tax question for a new recreation center in Lincoln County did not.

Keith Schildroth won a seat on the Florissant City Council over Jonathan Hart.

Voter turnout was light.

Yes 1,009; No 2,181

Mid-County Fire - Tax Levy
Yes 195; No 235

Pattonville-Bridgeton Fire - Prop S for capital improvements

Note: Prop S failed because it needed 2/3 majority
