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.

Partly cloudy skies and very windy across northeast Kansas and northwest Missouri on your Monday. The winds gusted up to 45 to 55 miles per hour as a strong cold front made its way into the area. A few snowflakes were found mainly on the Kansas side as the front moved by.
