Linn Mar Bond Vote Set

MARION, Iowa (KCRG-TV9) -- The Linn-Mar Community School Board Monday night set the date for a new bond vote. More than 1,700 people petitioned for the vote.

The district is hoping voters will approve a $55 million bond issue on September 11.

The board says that would pay for two new buildings for just fifth and sixth-grade students.

Voters rejected an $80 million bond issue last fall. That one would have paid for three new schools and renovations at four others.
