      Columbia voters approve sewer bond issue


      By a wide margin, Columbia voters approved a $32.3 million sewer bond issue.


      The issue passed with almost 80 percent of the vote.


      Proposition 1 will pay to maintain the existing sewer system, extend some lines and improve the wastewater treatment plant.


      A group promoting the passage of the issue says sewer bills will go up by about $3.00 per month over the next five years.


      Only eight percent of voters came to the polls Tuesday.
