Faced with the reality of a deteriorating 1920 school building, voters in the West Central Community School District in Maynard have overwhelmingly approved a $ 7.6 million school bond issue in a special election.
Money raised from the bond will help build a new addition to the existing West Central junior-senior high school.
The overall project would cost about $9-million, with the remainder of the needed money for the project coming from the school district's share of the 1-cent local option sales tax.
Over 560 voters from three precincts turned out for the special election, which included two public measures. Both received over 76-percent approval.
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.
