XENIA — A pair of prominent tax levies were unofficially voted down by Greene County voters according to results released by the board of elections late Tuesday night.

Issue 12, a Greene County permissive sales tax that would have allowed officials to build a new jail and sheriff’s office; and Issue 9, a Bellbrook-Sugarcreek schools additional levy both failed. The sales tax was defeated 19,893-12,622 and the school levy was defeated 2,817-2,517.

However there are more than 9,000 outstanding ballots, including more than 1,000 in the Bellbrook school district so those results could change after the official results are released May 19.
