WEST PEORIA, Ill. (WEEK) -- -

West Peoria voters have declined a proposed measure that would have increased the garbage tax to 1.10 percent.   

The referendum would have changed how property owners were billed on their garbage collection fees moving the billing from a quarterly cycle to being paid on a monthly basis through their property tax bill. 

That is, the fee would have been added on as a separate fee along with amount of the property tax bill.  

The measure failed 411 (62 %) to 248 (38%).
