Election night in Sevier County decided at least one major issue, but left a tie in the Monroe City Council race.

The ballot question the entire county was asked to vote on concerning a bond to build a regional community development/recreation center failed.

Preliminary results showed 2,408 people voting in favor of the proposal, while 3,013 voted against it.

The proposal would have funded a portion of a new center that would include a comprehensive aquatics center, a gymnasium, classrooms and other amenities on a piece of ground adjacent to the campus of Snow College Richfield.

The proposal called for Richfield City to fund another portion of the project, along with a legislative appropriation through the college and a funding package through the Utah Permanent Community Impact Fund Board.

The Monroe City Council race ended with Erica Sirrine receiving 381 votes, followed by Michael Mathie with 337. Michael Miles and Dane Buchmiller both received 290 votes, tying them for the third seat that was up for election in Monroe. They were followed by Dana Lundgreen with 214 and Joseph Anderson with 212.
