Residents of the Gettysburg School District have overwhelmingly agreed to raise property taxes to fund a new school.
Seventy-eight percent of voters on Tuesday approved the $6.9 million bond measure. More than 600 people voted, for a turnout of more than 50 percent.
Superintendent Tim Hagedorn says the project for a new junior and senior high school and gym will be bid this spring and construction is expected to start in August. The project will be done in two phases and is scheduled to wrap up by fall 2015.
In another local vote Tuesday, residents of Mobridge narrowly rejected a measure to fund a $2.5 million aquatics center.
