PERRY, Kan. (KSNT) – People in the Perry-Lecompton area voted down a proposed recreation commission Tuesday evening.
The proposed commission would have been a five-person board with a yearly budget of around $70,000. This would come from raising a mill levy in the district. For a home worth $150,000 this would mean $17.25 in additional taxes.
More than 700 people turned out to vote, with over 62% of those voters rejecting the recreation commission.
