LAWRENCEVILLE, Ga. (AP) - Residents in a metro Atlanta county have decided to continue a penny-per-dollar sales tax to fund school improvements.

Gwinnett County residents approved the tax during Tuesday’s elections.

It’s expected to raise nearly $1 billion to fund school improvement projects in the county and the Buford city school districts.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports (http://on-ajc.com/1HqALu4) that with votes counted in nearly all election precincts, about three out of four residents voted to extend the tax.
