Election results: Wastewater, tax measures pass

CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO (KFVS) - Unofficial results with 14 of 14 precincts reporting, the Proposition 1 Tax Extension for Cape Girardeau results had, voters approve the 20-year extension of a quarter-cent sales tax bond measure:

Yes 6078

No 1525

Proposition 2 results have Cape Girardeau voters approving the $72 million bond measure to pay for a new wastewater treatment plant:

Yes 6048

No 1513

That means should see an average of a $23 increase versus $32 if both failed, according to the city.

That will allow the city to get a low interest loan and use a combination of bonds to build the wastewater treatment plant which should be built by 2014.
