ILCC Trustees Meet

Emmetsburg, IA (KICD)–The Board of Trustees of Iowa Lakes Community College gathered in Emmetsburg Tuesday afternoon.

The Trustees approved a bid for a drainage project for the Emmetsburg campus with the bid going to Valley Contracting of Estherville for $228,000.

The Trustees held a public hearing on a Secure Access Project which will enhance security at all five campuses of the college. That bid was awarded to Security Equipment Inc. for an amount of just over $478,000.

Pogress is being made on the Chava wind turbine. Testing should begin on the newly-designed, three-blade vertical axis turbine in late May.

Jolene Rogers, Executive Director of Community and Business Relations, received approval from the Trustees to proceed with a publication of notice concerning the sale of bonds not to exceed $1.15 million. This is for training funds which will be used for new job growth of more than 150 workers in the Iowa Lakes region.

Rogers also received approval for a gift to the college from the Algona plant of Snap-On Tools. The college will receive two, Fanuc robots to be used in the Engineering Technology and workforce training programs.

Spring Commencement will be Friday, May 13th.
