AMES SCHOOLS: Bond Referendum Passes
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.
