Pearland City Council on Monday voted unanimously to approve a resolution in support of the Alvin Independent School District bond election.

A portion of the city falls within Alvin ISD's boundaries. The school district is holding an election on November 3 for a $70.95 million bond issue. The bond will fund additional school campuses and includes purchasing land for a third high school.
