Ballots for Shelton's special election were due in Tuesday night by five and now the unofficial results are in. 

It looks as though Shelton will begin their $3.4 million project, aimed at improving safety and wellness of students.

The multi-million bond issue passed with 63% in support and 37% against.

Superintendent Brian Redinger said the project will drastically cut down on school safety issues with the addition of a central office.  The new office will require visitors to check before entering the school.

The bond also included the addition of a second gym.  Shelton students have struggled with late night practices in the past, as they were forced to wait for the school's only gym.
