IKM-Manning to Hold Community Meetings on Bond Vote
The IKM-Manning Community School District and Board of Education will hold several community meetings focused on the September 14 bond issue vote.
The meetings will allow residents to learn more about the district’s needs and the solution that will appear on the ballot. Attendees will also be able to ask questions and provide feedback.
The meetings will take place Tuesday, August 17 at Memorial Hall in Manilla; Wednesday, August 25 at IKM-Manning Elementary School; and Wednesday, September 1 at the IKM-Manning High School Auditorium. Each meeting will begin at 7 p.m.
“Throughout this process, we have turned to the community to seek their input and feedback on how we can best address the facilities needs in our school buildings,” said Sam Hansen, Board President. “Now, we are pleased to host these upcoming meetings to share more information and answer questions. We look forward to meeting with residents over the next several weeks and speaking to the solution we have proposed in the form of a bond issue vote.”
The IKM-Manning board has called for a bond issue vote that, if approved, would enable the district to move forward with a series of projects to address facilities needs in both Irwin and Manning. An approved bond would have a tax rate impact of an additional $9.88 per month ($0.33/day) on a home with a $100,000 assessed value. While there would be an increase, IKM-Manning’s tax rate would remain one of the lowest in the area if the bond is approved.
