Cherokee school bond, among others, approved by northern Iowa voters

The fate of some multi-million dollar school bonds was on the line tonight.

While a River Valley School bond was rejected, a 12-million dollar bond in Cherokee, IA was approved.

Cherokee residents voted yes, 1,236 to 367, in favor of the general obligation bond. Those funds will go to cover the construction and furnishing of a Pre-K through 4th-grade school. The bond would also cover critical improvements to the middle school, and the Washington High School building, including new locker rooms.

Also in Cherokee County, voters in the Marcus-Meriden-Cleghorn School District voted to pass a Physical Plant and Equipment Levy.

Unofficial returns from Cherokee County show the measure passed 116 to 32. The 10-year levy would impose an instructional support tax which would pay for construction, purchasing, leasing equipment or technology, and school expansion.

Voters also passed a Support Levy, 112 to 31, which will be used for general fund purposes.

Voters in the River Valley area of Woodbury county have voted against a Physical Plant and Equipment Levy for the River Valley Community School District.

The 10-year levy would have gone toward security measures such as cameras and door lock-down improvements.
Voters rejected the measure, 143 to 111.

Residents in the Whiting School district said yes to their measure, 54 to 8.

That bond is to build and furnish new schools, improve school buildings, and to establish and maintain public recreation spaces.
