RAD opponents fall short in close vote

OPPONENTS OF THE proposed resort area district for Snowshoe and Silver Creek resorts fell short of the number of votes needed to delay the process. Twenty-five percent or 458 votes would have delayed it for a year. The final count was 443, just 15 votes shy of reaching their objective. The county commission will act on the RAD petition at its August 19 meeting. G. Hamill photo
