St. Joseph voters decided Tuesday to continue the CIP half-cent sales tax for the next five years.

The measure passed with 73-percent of the vote.

The tax will generate roughly $25 million dollars for more than 30 projects.

The top five projects include: asphalt streets, a new fire station, Hyde Park water feature, grading work at Eastowne Business Park, and a new ladder truck for the fire department.

The Community Improvements Program has been in existence since 1989.
