On Tuesday, voters in West Central Community School District overwhelmingly approved a $7.6 million bond issue in a special election to build a new addition to the existing high school.

The overall project is expected to cost nearly $9 million, with the remaining funds coming from the district’s share of the 1-cent local option sales tax.

Both measures received at least 76 percent approval, with 569 voters turning out in three precincts.

The addition will include an education area, an elevator with handicapped-accessibility, and a new practice gym.

Construction is expected to begin this fall and be completed in time for the 2015 school year.
