PLEASANT GROVE, Utah — The voters of Pleasant Grove have decided on a controversial bond that was proposed on their general election ballot this year, and the city will not be getting a new public safety building.

After the vote was tallied, 52.58 percent of voters were against the bond and 47.42 percent were for it. The bond would have funded a new public safety building.

The people against it have been saying they’ve felt the police department was using strong arm tactics to approve the bond, while those for it have said the current police and firefighter headquarters are in a state of extreme disrepair.
