Voters in the Ogden City School District approved a $10 million bond Tuesday.

Turnout was low - only about 16 percent of Ogden's registered voters made it to the polls, Weber County Clerk Richard Greene said.Favoring the bonds were 3,713, while 2,297 voted against the proposition.

District officials have said that property taxes would not increase if the bond was approved because money from the existing capital budgets will be used to pay back the bond.

The school district called for a bond election so improvements could be made.

The money will be used to repair roofs, floors and drain and sewer systems. Money will also be spent for new classroom computers and to purchase a new bus.

Officials have also said that money was needed to build a new soccer field and parking lots.
