Special to the Miami Herald

Miami Springs residents rejected a referendum Tuesday that would have authorized the City Council to sell a 10,299-square-foot parking lot beside a golf course for $115,000.

A developer wanted to build a hotel on the site.

“We have 908 yes votes and 1,039 no votes,” said City Clerk Erika Gonzalez-Santamaria.

Of the city’s 8,259 registered voters, 1,947 cast ballots, according to election officials, a turnout of 23.5 percent.

Miami Springs has a population of about 14,000.
