One of the three votes in favor of the ordinance came from supervisor David Billings, who has since resigned.
According to the Express-Times, a revised version of the ordinance came before the board Thursday. With Billings gone and a new board member yet to take office, the vote was 2-2, meaning the ordinance died.
The board on Thursday voted to appoint Ed Moore to fill Billings' seat. Moore had been a member of the recreation board, which supported the ordinance.
