Voters approve Hawkeye bond referendum

Voters overwhelmingly approve Hawkeye bond referendum

Posted: Updated:

Voters in ten area counties Tuesday overwhelmingly approved a $25-million bond referendum for Hawkeye Community College. 

The final district-wide numbers show 77-per cent approval of the referendum. The bond needed 60-per cent approval. 

District-wide, there were 3,463 'Yes' votes, while 1,032  voted 'No.'

The referendum was necessary because Hawkeye's current levy  is expiring.
