OTTUMWA, Iowa (KYOU) - New funds are coming in to Indian Hills, now that the college’s $28 million bond referendum got approval from over 60% of voters in last night’s election.

The funds will be gained over a twenty year period for six new projects at Indian Hills, including renovations to several buildings, new virtual classrooms in high schools, and a new law enforcement center.

Indian Hills’ President couldn’t be more excited to see the measure pass with voters’ approval. “It passed in every single county, and overall 73%. It’s kind of unheard of. We just appreciate their support of Indian Hills Community College and the work that we do as a 10-county region we do together makes a huge impact, so we’re thankful to them for sure.”

The college will first turn its attention to the Centerville Campus. They’ll hire an architect to design a new building to replace the 50 year old module units on the campus now.

Construction is expected to begin next June.
