Three town hall meetings will be held across the Waterloo Community School District next week to give residents a chance to learn specific details about the special election that will take place on Feb. 2, 2016.

Next month, voters who live in the Waterloo Schools boundary will be asked to approve a $47 million funding plan for a proposal career center and high school renovations.

Voters will decide whether to issue general obligation bonds to build the Career Technical Education (CTE) Center adjacent to Central Middle School, which would offer 30 new career choices for students. The estimated cost to build the proposed center is $35 million.

District officials also want to spend $12 million — divided equally — on planned renovations at East and West High Schools.

Residents are encouraged to attend next week's town hall meetings to learn specific details on the special election and get their questions answered before they go to the polls.

The town hall meetings are scheduled at the following locations:

Waterloo Center For The Arts - 225 Commercial Street, Downtown
>> Tuesday, January 19 at 7:00 p.m.

Payne AME Church - 1044 Mobile Street, Waterloo
