Leeds voters on Tuesday turned down a property tax increase to help fund city schools and build a new municipal center, as well as an athletic complex at the high school.

The tax increase failed to pass by a vote of 1506 to 971.

The tax increase would have been 9 mills. The owners of a $100,000 home can expect to pay $90 more in annual property taxes than they pay already. The owners of a $300,000 home can expect to pay an additional $270 a year.
