MARANA, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Voters overwhelmingly approved ballot measures Tuesday to allow the town to operate its own wastewater treatment plants.

The first question asked voters if the town should operate and own a facility, which it agreed in principle to buy from Pima County in 2012 for $18 million. The plant serves 2,100 customers. It was approved 4,132-1,387 (75-25 percent).

The second asked if the town could take on a second facility, which serves 60 customers. It was approved 4,053-1,458 (74 percent-26 percent).

In the city council race, all six candidates advanced to a May 21 general election. 

Patti Comerford, Kent Crotts, Herb Kai, Carol McGorray, David Morales and Jon Post were on the ballot. 

Kai (3,722) and Post (3,679) received the most votes Tuesday.

Voters were allowed to vote for up to four candidates in the race.

Town clerk Jocelyn Bronson said 20,226 voters were registered in Marana.
