UPDATE: Voters approve Dakota Valley high school expansion

Posted:
NORTH SIOUX CITY, SD (KTIV) -

NORTH SIOUX CITY, S.D. (KTIV)- Voters in the Dakota Valley school district have overwhelmingly approved a bond to pay for a $27 million expansion of the high school.

More than 84% of voters said "yes" to the bond. Another 16% said "no."

The plans call for a two-story, 130,000 square foot addition with a new commons area, and a gym with three basketball courts. The current high school, in North Sioux City, South Dakota, is 20-years-old. Despite the price tag, the bond company says property taxes won't go up. "It's awesome, it's awesome. I'm excited for the school, excited for the community. So I think this school district plays an important part in the community, and I think the community spoke loud and clear," said Mike Hamm, Dakota Valley school district Business Manager.

Work will get started in the fall.
