Pasco County voters approved new long-term debt and higher property taxes for public safety and leisure services on Tuesday.
By wide margins, voters supported three of four separate bond issues for fire stations, libraries and parks.
The expanded jail, the most expensive element of the $241 million capital spending plan, was approved by just 1,596 votes out of more than 193,000 cast on that issue, according to unofficial returns.
The county spent $123,000 for an Orlando consultant to do public opinion polling, town hall meetings, social media outreach and advertising to inform voters about the bond issues. The proposals drew no public objections during a public hearing in June and few attended the first of four town hall meetings in early October.
