In Winter Park, the line-up at Town Hall will be virtually unchanged following the April 5 election.

Mayor Jimmy Lahrman received 81 votes, Councilor Jim Myers received 76 votes, Councilor Mike Periolat received 67 and Councilor Chris Seemann also received 67 votes.

Write-in candidate Art Ferrari received 39 votes.

Winter Park voters approved Referred Measure A, which asks whether the town should continue collecting a 1 percent sales and lodging tax, first adopted in 1991, to be used for capital improvement projects. Eighty-eight voters supported the referral while 25 voters did not.
