LEVY VOTE: Fort Dodge Passes Levy
Voters in Fort Dodge passed a levy to increase school funding.
Results from the special election show just over 3,000 residents turned out to cast their ballots Tuesday.
The levy will renew the current $0.67 physical plant and equipment levy and increase it by another $0.67. The money is used for things like school construction and equipment needs.
Just over 51 percent of people voted yes to the increase.
This same issue failed in a special election back in December.
**An earlier version of this post said the levy failed to pass, there was confusion over whether a simple majority was required to pass the vote. Sorry for the mix-up.
