Voters in La Puente overwhelmingly overturned the city's first redevelopment project and defeated a public safety tax in a special election Tuesday. With 12.8% of the eligible voters casting ballots, a referendum on a downtown redevelopment project approved by the City Council in June was rejected 917 to 363. A proposed property tax increase to be spent on police services was rejected 1,063 to 199. It would have cost homeowners $75 and businesses 25 cents per square foot annually.
