The Grays Harbor County Auditor’s Office certified the results of this month’s special elections, and showed that the opinion on the local measures did not change.
35.48% of voters turned out in total locally, and the majority of them who did approved their local measures.
62.83% of Aberdeen voters, 2,540 in all, voted yes on a new Transportation District and tax within the city. The thirteen-hundredths of one percent (0.0013) sales-and-use tax on qualifying purchases will go specifically to finance transportation projects.
In Hoquiam, 1,692 voters, or 73.64%, approved the funding of a new ladder truck for the city. The measure for a new truck, valued up to $1.3 million, had failed a levy in 2011 before passing this month.
