The Community Preservation Act may have passed in Millis, but Wrentham voters weren't so keen on it.
The proposal to set up a community preservation fund failed on a 2,084-2,316 vote, with 141 blanks, Town Clerk Carol Mollica said.
The measure called for the addition of a 2 percent surcharge on property tax bills.
Critics said the new charge was an additional tax and that they were concerned the state wouldn’t be able to continue its current practice of matching funds raised by communities dollar-for-dollar.
