Saxman residents voted on two ordinances last week. Proposition 1 was
approved to allow the City of Saxman to either issue bonds or obtain a
loan for up to $1.5 million to finance the completion of the Saxman
Community Center and Proposition 2, to allow the Saxman sales tax to be
increased from 3.5% to 4.5%, failed. Frank Seludo won one of the two
three-year city council seats and Tim Burton and Peachy Williams tied for
the second seat.   A run-off election will be held Friday, October 11, to
determine the winner.    Sylvia Bane won the one two-year seat and Albert
