Bettendorf residents to vote on $30M school bond next week
BETTENDORF, Iowa (AP) — Bettendorf school district patrons are being asked to approve a $30 million bond issue to renovate several school buildings.
The vote on Tuesday comes after the Bettendorf Community School District board approved the bond issue earlier this year. The Quad-City Times reports that the money will be used to remodel, renovate or improve the district’s high school and middle school, as well as Herbert Hoover, Paul Norton and Neil Armstrong elementary schools.
Superintendent Mike Raso says that if the bond is approved, the projects will be completed in phases over 3-to-6 years. He says if the bond doesn’t pass, it will take between 12 and 15 years to accomplish everything on the list.
