Nov 9, 2012 5:46 AM -
For the second time this year voters have rejected a multimillion dollar tax hike for the Arlington Heights Park District. With all Cook County votes counted, voters rejected a $39 million bond issue by 863 votes -- or 16,440 "no" votes to 15,577 "yes" votes. "The board and the staff are very disappointed," said Executive Director Steve Scholten. "This is a good plan that would move the district forward into the 21st century."
