COUNCIL BLUFFS, Iowa (AP) — Iowa Western Community College is asking voters to support a $14.5 million bond issue to upgrade security on its campus.
The Daily Nonpareil reports (http://bit.ly/2eJGYhD ) the special election on the bond issue will be held in parts of 13 western Iowa counties on Dec. 6.
College spokesman Don Kohler says the plan calls for installing new locks and doors throughout the campus, adding new cameras and upgrading the college's computer system to better monitor activity.
Some of the issues were discovered last year during a drill with Council Bluffs police.
College officials say the bond issue shouldn't lead to higher taxes because it would replace an existing tax levy.
