vote

Ames voters have approved a $55 million bond referendum to be used to build new schools.

The vote was held Tuesday and passed 69-percent to 30-percent.

The money will be used to build three new elementary schools and to renovate two others. All of the work will be completed in time for the 2016-2017 school year.

Less than six months ago voters rejected a $65 million referendum.
