LOGAN, Utah (AP) -- Cache County voters cast ballots in favor of more taxes for road improvements, but said no to paying for a better bus system.
The increase in sales taxes to improve regional roads passed with more than 54 percent of the vote. The measure is expected to bring in $3 million annually for road improvements, right-of-way purchases and new construction.
More than 52 percent of voters voted against increasing taxes to pay for expanded local transit systems. Just 47 percent of voters favored the measure.
The funded would have allowed the Cache Valley Transit District to provide later evening service, more direct route service, and a Logan Main Street shuttle service.
District manager Todd Beutler says the system will now try to improve efficiencies without any extra funding.
