Proposition One would have extended city limits to include an area called Meadows by the Lake along with two hotels and a store within the area.</p><p>City Administrator Nathan Nickolaus said there was a high voter turnout, and 65 percent of voters agreed with it. But, the support needed to pass the proposition was still a little short of 66.6 percent. Nickolaus said the reason for the proposition failure could be tied to voters not being informed about it.</p> Mon, 12 Nov 2012 13:44:39 +0000 Asia Myles 24376 at http://kbia.org Jefferson City voters reject move to expand city limits Newscast for November 7, 2012 http://kbia.org/post/newscast-november-7-2012-0 <p>Regional news coverage from the KBIA Newsroom, including:</p><ul><li>Boone County voters pass Proposition 1</li><li>Voter turnout at 65.7 percent in Missouri</li><li>Mo.
