CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) - Teton County voters rejected a proposed 1 percent general revenue sales tax increase, while voters in Park, Campbell and Sheridan counties renewed lodging taxes in Tuesday’s election.

The Teton County sales tax would have raised $10 million to $12 million a year. County officials had planned on using the money for housing and transportation projects.

Voters in Park and Sheridan counties decided to keep charging a local 4 percent lodging tax, while voters in Campbell County renewed its 2 percent lodging tax.

In addition, Park County voters approved a 1 percent special use tax that will raise nearly $14 million for infrastructure projects.
