Voters in the three counties that make up the Lake of the Ozarks area turned down a hike in their lodging sales taxes during Tuesday's election.

Camden, Miller and Morgan county residents rejected a proposal to increase the lodging tax in the Lake of the Ozarks Area Business District. The tax would have risen to 6 percent to help build a soccer complex.

The lodging tax will stay at 3 percent in Camden and Morgan counties and 5 percent in Miller County.

Had the increase been approved, it would have provided funds to promote tourism in the district, including the construction, operation and maintenance of sports facilities, according to the ballot language.

The unofficial vote total for all three counties showed 1,610 yes votes and 4,682 no votes.
