Voters approve $25M bond for Iowa Central Community College

Posted: Updated:

FORT DODGE, Iowa (AP) - Voters have approved $25.5 million in bonds for Iowa Central Community College to finance building projects at the college's campuses across the state.

The Messenger reports that more than 67 percent of voters approved the bond issue Tuesday for building improvements and construction at campuses in Eagle Grove, Fort Dodge, Storm Lake and Webster City.

About $6 million of the bond money will build a student success center on the Fort Dodge campus to house a variety of student services that are currently scattered across campus.

College President Dan Kinney says the bond issue is about keeping young people in the area by investing in education. He says the college will begin consulting with architects to finalize the building projects and working with financial consultants to borrow the money.
