Voters in two metro school districts approved plans on Tuesday to give their schools more money.

In Ankeny voters overwhelmingly approved a $10-million bond referendum.

The money will be used to fix up the aging Northview Middle School. The 40-year-old building is in need of a new heating and cooling system.

Over 2,700 voters cast their ballot with 78-percent of them agreeing to borrow the money to complete the renovations.

Two thirds of voters approved the continuation of the physical plant and equipment levy.
