Bannock County voters have rejected a proposal on the ballot to study a merger of the cities of Pocatello and Chubbuck. The advisory question was defeated, according to the Bannock County Elections Department website, with 53.41% of the votes going against the idea.
According to Wikipedia, the City of Chubbuck’s residents have consistently opposed consolidation of their city with their southern neighbor, Pocatello, since the 1960’s. The entire city council and mayor of Chubbuck had gone on record against the current proposal.
