LAYTON -- City officials are expected to certify the final tallies for two land referendums, which were voted down by local voters, as part of the city council's Dec. 6 meeting.
Election results for the rest of the county were certified Nov. 20 by the Davis County Commission, but the city results won't be finalized until the council holds its first December meeting, City Recorder Thieda Wellman said.
Unofficial results show Ballot Initiative No. 2 was defeated 12,726 to 11,941, and Proposition 3 went down 12,780 to 11,876.
A closer look at the unofficial numbers provided by the Davis County Board of Elections shows the measures, which have facilitated creation of a possible village development akin to Daybreak in Salt Lake County, carried only 15 of the city's 43 precincts.
Of the 13 precincts with voters on the west side of Interstate 15, only one of them supported the city measures. Ironically that area, Precinct 32, is directly to the north of the proposed village site, north of Hill Field Road.
The issue did not play out to an east side versus west side issue either, the tallies show.
