Showdown in Alamo Over Cityhood

Voters in Alamo in a special election did not pass a measure that would have incorporated the community into the  Town of Alamo," according to complete unofficial election results.
Measure A, which would have made Alamo a general law city governed  by a five-member elected city council, appears to have lost with 66 percent  voting "No" and 34 percent voting "Yes," complete unofficial election results  reported.

The town of Alamo would have been responsible for creating a local police force or negotiating a contract with the sheriff's office to be able  to begin providing law enforcement services for the town.

The town also would have had to prepare a new government to provide land use planning, building and safety inspections, code enforcement,  road maintenance, animal control, and parks and recreation maintenance and  services.

Instead, the county will continue to provide such services to the unincorporated community.
