WITCC to host satellite voting Jan. 29

Monday, January 21, 2013

Western Iowa Tech Community College (WITCC) will provide an opportunity Jan. 29 for residents of Cherokee County to cast absentee ballots for the Feb. 5 special election.

At this special election, WITCC will seek renewal of its current instructional equipment levy. This levy is not a new tax. It generates funds which are restricted to providing instructional equipment for the college. This equipment allows WITCC to keep its educational and training programs state-of the-art for another 10 years.

The levy is 1/6 of a penny for every dollar paid in property taxes. This is equal to approximately $1.50 annually for a home valued at $50,000.

Voting will take place at the Cherokee WITCC Campus on Tuesday, Jan. 29 from noon to 8 p.m. Voting will be held in the lobby and is open to the public.

For additional information, contact Darla Struck, Director of the Cherokee WITCC Campus at 225-0238, or County Auditor/Commisioner of Elections Kris Glienke at 225-6704 at the courthouse.
