Not just no ...
Voters in Shawnee could hardly have been more emphatic in their rejection of a plan that would have spent close to $47 million on city projects. A 10-year, half-cent sales tax to pay for a $19 million regional sports complex received just 13.7 percent approval in Tuesday’s election. A $13 million bond issue for street, sidewalk and landscaping improvements mustered 22.6 percent approval. Three other bond issues, totaling $13 million and going for such things as upgrades to a city pool and public safety communications system, failed to top 25 percent. One outspoken opponent of the proposals said they were “too much for the city of Shawnee” and that backers’ priorities were out of line. As the results showed, that’s putting it lightly.
