Albert Lea voters approve major building project for public schools

ALBERT LEA, Minn. (FOX 47) -

Albert Lea Area Schools got strong support from voters Tuesday, approving a major bond issue for improvements to the Hammer Sports Complex and Halverson Elementary School.

After a see-saw vote tally through the evening, supporters of the $24,615,000 proposal were victorious by a margin of 2,148 to 1,898. 

Because a previous building project is nearly paid for, Superintendent Mike Funk noted there wouldn't be any big tax increase to approve this request.

In addition to the planned upgrades to the Hammer Sports Complex at the high school, officials plan to expand the gymnasium at Halverson Elementary School.
