(KMOV) -- An overwhelming 83 percent of taxpayers approved an $8 million bond issue Tuesday night in Valley Park.
School officials say approval was vital in order to avoid across the board budget cuts from staff to transportation.
The bond issue that was approved has no tax increase according to district officials.
Voters in the Lindbergh School District voted to approve a $36 million bond issue with 59 percent, just more than the 4/7 majority needed.
The money is slated for a new elementary school and improvements at the high school.
