HOLTON, Kan. (AP) - Holton voters have approved a $21.3 million bond issue that will be used to build an elementary school.

WIBW-AM reports (https://bit.ly/1kLsyED ) unofficial results of Tuesday’s election show the issue passed by a 934-756 vote.

The district says it will buy property just west of the current Colorado Elementary School. It will then demolish the current school and build a two-story structure that will replace both of Holton’s existing elementary schools.

A 1986 addition to the original building will be renovated for administrative support offices.

The state will reimburse the district for 55 percent of the construction costs, or $11.8 million. The district’s responsibility for about $9.6 million will be financed overs 25 years.
