Casper, WY (AP) - Natrona County voters have rejected a $33 million bond issue to pay for school improvements.

Preliminary results from Tuesday's election show the measure failing 52 percent to 48 percent.

The bond would have paid for improvements the state does not fund, including tighter security at local schools, high-end equipment for students, a new planetarium and remodeled swimming pools.

Natrona County School District Board of Trustees Chairman Dave Applegate tells the Casper Star-Tribune that the election results mean more work is needed in listening, understanding and delivering on the community's expectations.
