Unofficial results indicate that Basalt voters narrowly rejected ballot questions related to buying the former Pan and Fork mobile home parcel. Tuesday night results show that about 52 percent of voters said “no” to the town buying the land to build a park, and about 55 percent voted against park-related improvements.
