FISHERS, Ind. (AP) - Voters in Indiana's largest town have endorsed a plan to turn their fast-growing community into a city.


Voters in the Indianapolis suburb of Fishers approved a ballot measure Tuesday making the town of 80,000 residents a second-class city with an elected mayor.


The Indianapolis Star and the Indianapolis Business Journal report that voters endorsed by a 55-to-44 percent margin a ballot measure to make the Hamilton County town a traditional city. Traditional cities have an elected mayor, six district councilors and three at-large councilors.


Fishers' voters overwhelmingly rejected by a 62-to-37 percent margin a different plan that would have turned the community into a "hybrid city" with an appointed mayor.


The competing proposals had divided many town residents.
