JACKSON, MO (KFVS) - Jackson voters will decide the fate of a bond issue that could raise money for a new elementary.

If voters say yes, the Jackson school will be able to build a new elementary school on Lacey Street.

"A lot of information has gone out about this," said Jackson Superintendent Dr. Ron Anderson. "It's something that's really good for the students and it's in addition good for the community.  Good schools and good communities go together and it's good for the businesses and the community because people move here because of the schools."

If you vote in Jackson and you vote "yes" in Jackson's bond issue Tuesday, property taxes will not go up.

The vote just gives the district the authority to issues $16 million in new bonds and it's a no tax rate increase.

You can catch the election results tonight on Heartland News at 9 and 10, along with up-to-date results at HeartlandVotes.com.
