Feb 2 is important for Iowa Lakes

By Staff | Jan 27, 2016

February 2 is of critical importance to the entire Iowa Lakes Community College district. For the first time ever, Iowa Lakes needs your vote to approve a new $16 million bond referendum.

The bond will sunset in1 5 years with real estate tax implications for individuals with a home valued at $100,000, only an additional $11.70 annually.

Vital projects which will enhance student learning and increase safety at all five campuses are the focus of this initiative.

As an Iowa Lakes alumni, I ask you to join me at the poll on Feb. 2, or stop in at the Emmet County Auditor Office and vote yes. Iowa Lakes Community College has been a great educational resource for myself, my family and our communities. Please join me and support this much needed bond referendum. Please invest in the education of our future students.
