CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) - Voters in two Wyoming counties have decided what projects to fund with local sales taxes.

In voting Tuesday, Laramie County voters approved seven of nine ballot propositions although one to expand court facilities in Cheyenne will be subject to a recount because the vote was so close.

More than $118 million worth of projects were proposed, and voters approved $91.6 million worth, including an expansion of the county jail and a new county multi-purpose event facility. They rejected two indoor recreation facilities in Cheyenne.

In Teton County, voters approved six projects totaling $34.4 million, including a new senior living center, workforce housing, recreation center renovations and a central campus in Jackson for Central Wyoming College. They rejected expanding transit service and a pair of affordable housing projects.
