It’s time for voters living in the Akron-Westfield School District to go to the election polling place and cast their vote either for or against the school board’s proposed $6.99 million General Obligation Bond.

In October, the school board’s Long Term Facilities Planning Committee through CMBA Architects announced their $6.99 million General Bond proposal, which will be decided in a special election, which is Tuesday, Dec. 11.

Shall the Board of Directors of the Akron-Westfield Community School District in the County of Plymouth, State of Iowa, be authorized to contract indebtedness and issue General Obligation Bonds in an amount not to exceed $6,990,000 to provide funds to build, furnish, and equip an addition to its existing educational facilities, to remodel, repair, equip, and improve its existing educational facilities, and to improve the site?”
