Kingman County voters have rejected a tax increase that would have been used to build a new law enforcement center.
Unofficial returns from Tuesday's voting showed the measure lost 802 to 749. The proposal was for a new one-quarter percent retailers' sales tax for 20 years and to extend a current three-quarters percent sales tax, also for 20 years.
The county planned to use the sales tax revenue and payments from a commercial wind farm to build an $11.8 million law enforcement center. It would have housed the county sheriff's office and Kingman police.
