Voters in a handful of eastern Iowa communities cast their ballots at the polls today during a series of bond votes tied to school projects.
In Monticello, unofficial results have a $15 million bond passing by a tally of 1,427 "Yes" votes (70.9%) to 586 "No" votes (29.1%). That bond will help pay for a new middle school addition onto the existing high school in Monticello.
Meanwhile in Bellevue, unofficial results show a $16 million bond for a new elementary school has been rejected by voters. Out of 1882 total votes, 821 supported the bond (43.62%), while 1,056 people voted against it (56.11%).
Results are still pending at this time for a $55 million bond vote within the Linn-Mar Community School District and a $39 million tax levee continuance for Northeast Iowa Community College. KWWL will update this story as results from those votes become available.
