INDEPENDENCE (KWWL) -

The city of Independence has passed a special election for a new city swimming pool.

729 people voted yes to the following question: "Shall the City of Independence enter into a loan agreement and issue bonds in an amount not exceeding $3,000,000 for the purpose of paying the cost, to that extent, of constructing, furnishing, and equipping a municipal swimming pool?"

The 729 votes easily exceed the 60% super majority required to pass the public measure.
