DAILY PRESS & ARGUS
Voters have struck down a rezoning request that would have paved the way for a gas station at a major intersection in Cohoctah Township, although the fight might be long from over.
Fifty-six percent of residents in Tuesday's referendum voted "no" on whether the township should rezone some land from rural residential to neighborhood services commercial off Oak Grove Road, just south of the Oak Grove United Methodist Church.
The final tally was 371 no, 291, yes with 28% turnout. This case is now probably going to court.
