Voters in the Kearney Fire and Rescue Protection District turned down a $3.5 million general obligation bond issue on Tuesday.
The proceeds would have been used to buy out the balance of a 2002 lease-purchase agreement that funded renovation and expansion of the district’s fire station, as well as acquisition of two ambulances and a pumper truck.
The proceeds also were to upgrade personal protective equipment and to finish the lower level of the station for training, public education and emergency operations.
