HONEYVILLE, Utah (AP) -- On Tuesday, some Honeyville voters won't get a say in whether their taxes will increase to fund a new fire district.

About 30 Honeyville homes were left out when the district boundaries were drawn last year. The district includes Bear River City, Corrine, Deweyville, Elwood and Honeyville.

Box Elder County recorder and clerk LuAnn Adams says the exclusion was discovered as county surveyors plotted out voting precinct boundaries.

Adams says the attorney who worked on the fire district has been notified of the error.

For now residents can't cast ballots for Proposition 8 and Proposition 9. The measures would increase taxes by about $79 per household to fund the district, including issuing a $1 million bond for a fire district facility and equipment.

Adams says she anticipates amending the district boundaries to include the excluded homes.
