PAGE — Locally, the sale of Lake Powell Mobile Home Village was approved by voters Tuesday, and putting fluoride in the water was voted down. Coconino Community College’s plans for an override of its budget failed, and Donald G. Roberts was elected to another term as Page’s Justice of the Peace.

Prop. 400, the sale of the mobile home park, passed with 54.93 percent of the vote. In favor the sale were 953 voters, while 782 voted no. This will allow the park, currently owned by the city of Page to be sold to Larry and Kim Tardie for $5.15 million.

The fluoride question saw 62.45 percent of the voters not wanting fluoride in the water. Casting no votes were 1,091 voters, while 656 wanted fluoride in the water. As a result, the council cannot take any action to put fluoride in the water.

At CCC, the override that would have given the college an additional $16 million failed with more than 58 percent of the vote. Saying no were 17,676 voters, while 12,683 were in favor.

Roberts, a democrat, obtained 2,349 votes in his re-election campaign, 70.35 percent of the vote. His challenger, republican Andrew Grim, received 986 votes.

Voter turnout was 44.8 percent for Page (1,795 voters casting a ballot out of 4,006 registered voters).
