55% of the community voted yes on the budget proposal while 45% voted no on the budget. The two propositions were approved by 76% and 75%, respectively. However, the district’s proposal to exceed the property tax cap required 60% of voters to vote yes. Therefore the budget was not approved and by law the propositions cannot be approved if the budget proposal to exceed the cap is not approved.
