Voters Deciding on 2 Indianola School Bond Issues
INDIANOLA, Iowa (AP) - Voters in the Indianola school district are going to the polls to decide on two bond issues.
A $23 million issue if passed would pay for security improvements at three elementary buildings and the high school. It would allow for school classroom doors to be locked from the inside. The money also would update heating, cooling, and plumbing systems at two of the elementary schools and improve playgrounds at the elementary schools.
A second $6 million issue would pay for a new varsity athletic stadium that would allow the community to have its own field for Friday night football games and other varsity athletic events. The district currently pays Simpson College to use its facilities.
Each bond issue requires 60 percent voter approval.
