Voters show support for Iowa Central

Bond proposal they approved will help college continue to thrive

Iowa Central Community College is an enormous asset to Fort Dodge and all of north central Iowa. Consequently, it’s very good news indeed that on Tuesday area voters approved a $25.5 million bond proposal that will enable further strengthening of this vital educational institution.

Not only does Iowa Central provide affordable educational opportunities for adults of all ages, but it also helps make certain that workers with the right technical skills are available to present and potential employers. The college is a vital part of the economic growth strategy for our part of the Hawkeye State.

Iowa Central is a very well run institution. It uses efficiently the monies it receives from property taxes, state general aid, tuition and fees, and donations from its many community supporters. Therefore, we feel certain that these additional financial resources will be used prudently and effectively to enhance the college.

The Daily Freeman-Journal strongly supported this bond proposal. We are delighted that so many of our region’s residents joined us in showing their support for Iowa Central by voting to approve this funding. We congratulate the college on receiving such a strong endorsement from our region’s voters.
