Improvements on two Staunton elementary schools are a-go after last night's City Council meeting.

The council voted to amend a budget ordinance, allowing an additional three million dollars for renovations of McSwain and Ware Elementary Schools.

That puts the total cost for the work at $18.7 million.

City officials say the money will come from the cell phone tax, which was originally earmarked for school improvements.
