NIACC, the college choice for more than 35% of all area 2 high school graduates, is seeking its first general obligation bond in its existence. As President Steve Schulz says, levying for a penny in DMACC’s district would incur millions for the school.
But North Iowa is a different beast altogether; a bit more needs to be asked for.
The college is asking for an increase of 85 cents on $100,000 homes and 2 cents an acre of land per month.
This money is slated to be used to create a Regional Career Center, expand workforce training in STEM fields, and renovate the North Iowa Community Auditorium.
The bond issue will be voted on on March 3.
