Wessington Springs voters approve $3.5M school bond issue

WESSINGTON SPRINGS, S.D. (AP) - Voters in the Wessington Springs school district have approved a $3.5 million bond issue for building upgrades, just two months after defeating a more expensive measure.

Sixty-two percent of voters in Tuesday's election favored the bond issue, which needed 60 percent approval to pass.

The money will cover various improvements, from plumbing to electrical systems.

Voters in November narrowly defeated a $4.5 million bond issue.
