New Lexington Levy fails
(2007-11-08)
(WOUB) - They gave it the old college try in New Lexington but officials there fell short in their effort to pass a levy Tuesday....which means plans for a new fire station will have to wait.

Polly Pletcher is a member of the town council in New Lex....where voters rejected the proposal by a more than two to one margin.

Mayor Janine Conrad says residents weren't ready to impose an income tax.

The tax would have brought in $140,000 a year.
