Five measures to set aside money for various city projects passed during Tuesday's elections in Omaha.

A $47 million bond will go toward street and highway work. $14 million will go to park projects. $13 million will go to sewer work. $10 million will go to public building improvement. $6 million will go to public safety. That money will also cover fire department costs.

Mayor Jean Stothert issued a statement about the approval of all the bonds:

"Thank you to the voters for approving the bonds. We will be able to pay for important projects and purchases in our Capital Improvement Plan, including fire trucks and medic units, road widening and resurfacing and improvements to our parks. Once again, voters have voiced their support for our long-term plans for improvements that will improve public safety and help Omaha grow."
