No Tax Hike Or New Schools In Vincennes

New Media Producer: Kerry Corum

Vincennes students won't be getting new schools - at least not any time soon.

Residents there overwhelmingly voted against a proposed property tax hike, which would have paid for two new elementary schools and a middle school.

Over 4000 residents signed a petition against the proposal, but only 2100 signed the petition in favor of a 32-cent increase.

The property tax hike would've raised $56 million for the additions.
