  • Local business leaders: Recallable nickel is an investment

    The results of the recallable nickel vote on Nov. 8 will not just impact the Marion County Public School System. The results will also impact the local economy, specifically the county’s ability to recruit new business and industry, as well as keep current industries here.

  • If Marion County approves the nickel

    Marion County Public Schools would be eligible to receive additional state funds for every dollar received if the recallable nickel is approved. Marion County will receive approximately $463,102 from state equalization EACH YEAR toward facilities. The bonding capacity for Marion County Public Schools would increase to $26.495 million dollars with state equalization. Marion County hasn’t approved the recallable nickel and is not eligible for state matching funds.
