ST.ANSGAR, Iowa - A local school district is hoping voters approve a 14-million dollar improvement project.
The final public meeting on the plan was held in St. Ansgar Thursday evening.
There was a large number of people heading into the library to hear how the project would affect their property taxes if the district builds a new elementary school, plus a high school gym and football field.
They learned for an $82,000 home, the tax increase would be around $70 a year.
“I think they want to be informed. They want to know where we’re spending their money, how we’re spending it, and if we’re being financially responsible with it,” said Tara Bork, a member of the Board of Education.
A special election will be held on Tuesday September 9th where a sixty percent majority will be needed to pass the bond issue.
