CASCADE, Idaho — Cascade residents voted down a proposed 1 percent local sales tax officials say would have brought in money to the city. 

The tax would have applied to purchases under $1,000, with some exceptions, and would have been in place for two years. The measure failed 123 to 111. 

The funds raised through the new tax would have gone towards streets, sidewalks, paths and crosswalks, as well as the maintenance and development of city parks.
