HENRY CO., AL (WSFA) - The results are in for Tuesday's special election in Henry County.

Citizens voted on two property tax increases to help fund local schools.

The 1 million tax renewal needed at least 60 percent of the vote to pass.

It barely slipped by with 61% of voters saying yes, 39% saying no.

The money will be used to help schools pay utility bills and renovation costs.

The 3 million property tax increase failed with 47% voting yes and 53% voting no.

That money would have been used to help keep popular Junior ROTC program afloat.
