ALBANY - Voters in the Albany school district have overwhelmingly approved a bond referendum. There were 2,079, or 81-percent, "yes" votes. And there were 472, or 19-percent, "no" votes.

The $33 million referendum will be used to update school security, expand classroom space, build a new auditorium, and create more community space.

Superintendent Greg Johnson says the district's enrollment has been steadily growing, and they need more room.

The owner of a $150,000 home in the district can now expect to pay an extra $120 a year on their property taxes.
