Fort Myers Shores, Fla.-There will not be a tax hike in Fort Myers Shores.
The measure to increase a fee to help balance the fire district's budget failed.
Only about 300 people voted in the election.
That's just six percent of the five-thousand eligible voters.
The fire department spent 20-thousand-dollars on Monday's election.
The chief says they gave it their best shot but unfortunately aren't able to advertise like candidates.
