OZARK, Ala. (AP) - The city council in the southeast Alabama city of Ozark has rejected a proposal to increase the local tax on gasoline.

The Dothan Eagle reports (https://bit.ly/1E38HB3) that the council on Tuesday voted 3-2 against the plan.

The tax would have added four cents to the two cents per gallon the city already collects.

Had the gas tax been approved, officials estimated it could have raised more than $500,000 to finance road resurfacing.
