City council votes here in Oberlin are still being counted at this hour, but a couple of major city issues have been decided.

A city income tax renewal is projected to overwhelmingly pass. With 87.5 percent of ballots counted, the issue has just shy of 75 percent voter support.

A community bill of rights will be adopted by a slightly slimmer margin. Also at 87.5 percent counted, those for the measure are leading 951 to 431, which means mathematically Issue 16 cannot fail.

A local option to allow liquor sales at Wal-Mart has 100 percent of its returns counted. The issue passed 51.5 to 48.5 percent.

The renewal of a tax supporting the Oberlin Public Library enjoys the largest margin as of 10 p.m., with 82 percent voter support. Three-fourths of ballots have been counted, but the victory is sealed for lovers of literature.
