GALENA, Kan. (AP) -- Galena residents will vote in June on a proposed $7.5 million bond issue for the city's schools.

The Galena Board of Education voted Monday to put the issue on the June 4 ballot.

If approved, the project would add classroom space at Spring Grove Elementary and Galena High School and add space at both schools to serve as tornado shelters. Other improvements would include a new high school gymnasium, lockers rooms, a concession area, a fitness room and a walking track.

The Joplin Globe reports (http://bit.ly/10AOMRy ) that figures provided by the district show the bond issue would add $128 a year to the cost of a $100,000 home.
