Hospital tax renewed

Election officials Ron Jones and Steve Ferri monitor the early voting systems during the special election for the hospital tax. The tax passed with 569 votes for and 145 against according to the complete but unofficial vote count Tuesday night. Since the vote renews the 1 percent sales tax until 2023, it will not increase county taxes.
