Below is a rundown of what voters will see on their ballots in Floyd County.
HAWKEYE COMMUNITY COLLEGE
Hawkeye Community College is asking voters to approve a $35 million bond referendum to renovate and expand existing college facilities to add a STEM learning center and support career training programs for construction, HVAC, plumbing, electrical, automotive and diesel technology programs and expand law enforcement training programs.
NASHUA-PLAINFIELD COMMUNITY SCHOOL DISTRICT
The Nashua-Plainfield Community School District is asking voters to approve a $3 million bond that will allow the district to construct a baseball/softball athletic complex including concession and restroom areas and improve the overall site. The school says if approved, it would save the District about $1 million in interest payments while paying off the bond more quickly. The District would use the funds available through the one-cent statewide sales tax (also known as SAVE) to pay off the bond, rather than increasing property taxes for school district residents.
NORTH BUTLER COMMUNITY SCHOOL DISTRICT
The North Butler Community School District is asking voters to approve a $12.6 million bond to help construct, furnish, and equip an addition to the Junior/Senior High School building, and improve the site by remodeling, repairing, improving and furnishing the existing buildings. The District says if approved, the bond issues would have a tax impact of no more than $2.70 per year on every $1,000 of assessed property value in the community.
The polls are open from 7:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m.
All eligible voters will vote at the Floyd County Fairgrounds, Youth Enrichment Center building. North Butler Community School District voters WILL NOT be able to vote at the Marble Rock Library.
