Blount County voters have, again, voted against a wheel tax during a special election Tuesday. The final vote was 4,087 for and 8,885 against.

County commissioners initially approved putting the proposal on the ballot in April, as a way to generate extra revenue for the Blount County School district.

The tax money would have been used to help the nearly $7 million deficit the school system expects to face next school year.
