MASON CITY, Iowa – Both school funding measures on the ballot were approved by Mason City voters Tuesday.

Those with the Cerro Gordo County Auditor's Office say despite being a special election and the snowy weather, 1,387 voters hit the polls and those who voted said there is a reason they ventured out in to the snow-filled streets.

"I think we should give our children every advantage that we can," said James Marinos, of Mason City.  "Obviously, expenses go up every year and I would hate for things to fall in to disrepair because we couldn't even keep up with where we were."

The Instructional Support Levy (ISL) and the Physical Plant and Equipment Levy (PPEL) received over 75 percent support. Both levies will now be in place for the next 10 years.

Mason City Community Schools says ISL raising money for district wide educational programming while PPEL funds go toward purchasing and repairing equipment and buildings.
