DECATUR, Ga. -- Voters appeared to reject a bid to create a new city in LaVista Hills on Tuesday.
Voters narrowly said no to LaVista Hills' bid for incorporation. Out of more than 13,000 votes cast, the measure was defeated by less than 150 votes.
The leader of the LaVista Hills Alliance, Mary Kay Woodworth, said opponents of cityhood made it "a partisan issue."
The result was different in DeKalb County's other proposed city. With 100% of the precincts reporting, the bid to create the city of Tucker was ahead 74% to 26%.
Voters overwhelmingly approved an act that revises the DeKalb County Board of Ethics.
The map was all-important at precincts deciding cityhood questions for LaVista Hills and Tucker.
