All voters in our four-county area will be voting on the NCC levy renewal. College officials say this is not a bond issue. It is the basic levy for things like utilities, and it has to be re-approved every ten years.
In the Sheldon School District Steve Holles is challenging Randy Merley for the Director at Large position and Susan Rensink is running unopposed in District One.
At Boyden Hull, Mark Nilles is running unopposed for District One. Doug Reuvers and Lisa Te Slaa are running for District Three.
In the MOC/Floyd Valley district, incumbents Gerald Van Roekel and Christine Koerselman are running unopposed for their seats on the board.
In the Rock Valley School District, the incumbents for the at-large seats were Scott Kooima, Al Vermeer, and Terry Van Maanen. Van Maanen and Vermeer are running again, but also on the ballot will be Matt Mousel, Charles Hoogeveen, Steve Van Den Top, and Ben Van Der Brink. Voters are to select three from the field of six. Kooima is not running again.
Voters in the Sioux Center School District will be selecting three at-large school board members. There were three incumbents, two of which have decided to run again — Lori Zomermaand and Dale Kraayenbrink. Tim Dykshorn is not running again, but Jerod Work has thrown his hat into the ring. Since voters are to select three, chances are they will be Zomermaand, Kraayenbrink, and Work. Also, Sioux Center Community School District voters will decide the fate of a $9.7 million bond issue for an Early Childhood Center, an addition to Kinsey Elementary, and repair and remodeling of existing facilities. They’re also voting on a levy to pay the principal on bonded indebtedness.
At West Sioux, incumbents Jeff Eilts and Gary Witt are running unopposed for Districts One and Two, and Ken Koch is running unopposed for the at-large position.
Additionally, Cynthia Porter is running unopposed for NCC District One. Steve Loshman is running unopposed for NCC District Four. Larry Hoekstra is running unopposed for NCC District Seven. And Adam Besaw is running unopposed for District Five.
Hours at the polls on Tuesday will be from 7 AM to 8 PM in Sioux County. For more information, you can call NCC, your school district office, or your county auditor.
