A big vote of confidence for the Huntsville school district as voters overwhelmingly reject a tax rollback.

Out of the 2,141 who cast ballots Friday, 1,536 (72 percent) voted against the referendum while 605 (28 percent) voted for it.

The election was triggered when the district proposed a tax increase of $.13, an amount exceeding the rollback cap. Huntsville property owners will now be paying $1.34 per $100 of assessed value.
