TIGARD, Ore. (KOIN) — A week after the election, the voters’ decision in Tigard whether to expand the light rail system remains too close to call.
Although the tally is outside the margin of a recount, the final vote won’t be official until November 28.
Tigard Mayor John Cook told KOIN 6 News he’s not surprised the vote is so close.
“We’re not surprised at the closeness of it,” he told KOIN 6 News. “It shows that people really care and they’re worried what the impacts will be along with the price.”
The city of Tigard sent out a press release the morning after the election that the measure appears to have passed.
Cook supports the Tigard light rail expansion because of what he sees as a huge population growth over the next few years.
