Storm Lake Early Elementary 2nd Phase Bond Vote Set for This Tuesday

Voters within the Storm Lake Community School District will head to the polls tomorrow (Tuesday, September 13th) to decide on a bond vote for the proposed 2nd phase of the Storm Lake Early Elementary School.

A 1st grade wing would be added to the building if the 9.95-million dollar bond is approved, which requires a super-majority of at least 60-percent in favor. 31-thousand square feet of additional space would be added to the Early Elementary Building.

District Chief Operating Officer Jeff Tollefson says the basic bones for the structure have been laid out…(audio clip below :19 )

The five voting precinct locations include the BV County Engineer Building, Storm Lake Library, St. Mark Lutheran Church in Storm Lake, the BV County Courthouse, and Lakeside City Hall. Those that are unsure about where they need to vote should go to the Iowa Secretary of State website.

Polling hours tomorrow (Tues) are from 7am to 8pm.
