In a close race Tuesday, Banks County voters shot down the redevelopment powers question on the ballot that would have allowed the county to make improvements in economically troubled areas.
The final count was 51 percent (or 1,278 votes) against the issue and 49 percent (or 1,218 votes) in favor.
Also on the ballot, voters agreed to continue the one-cent special purpose local option sales tax (SPLOST). The vote was 1,532 in favor and 1,021 against the sales tax.
