G-R residents to vote on school bond Sept.13

If approved, the bond would allow the district to address key facility needs

On Tuesday, September 13, residents of the Gladbrook-Reinbeck Community School District will vote on a bond issue. Polls will be open from 7:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. at the following locations:

Gladbrook Memorial Building

421 Johnston Street, Gladbrook

Residents of Crystal Township, Spring Creek Township, City of Gladbrook, and Marshall County should vote at this location.

Amvets Post #10 of Lincoln

101 E. Main Street, Lincoln

Residents of Grant Township, Lincoln Township, Buckingham Township, City of Lincoln, and Black Hawk County should vote at this location.

Reinbeck Memorial Building

208 Broad Street, Reinbeck

Residents of Grundy County should vote at this location.

If approved on September 13, the $23.6 million bond would enable the district to address its most pressing facility needs in both buildings. These include upgrades to heating, ventilation, and air conditioning systems, a gym expansion at the Junior/Senior High School, classroom additions at the elementary school, and secured entries at both buildings. The plan also calls for making every restroom and floor level handicap accessible, including the addition of an elevator.

An approved bond would have a property tax impact of $199.58 annually ($16.63 per month) on a home assessed at $100,000. For agricultural land, the impact would be anywhere from $5.36 to $6.62 per acre annually, depending on the location in Tama, Black Hawk, Grundy, or Marshall County.
