MCSD Shares Polling Locations Ahead of March 5 Vote

Residents of the Marshalltown Community School District will vote on a Physical Plant and Equipment Levy (PPEL) on Tuesday, March 5. 

Polls will be open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. on election day. Polling locations in the district include:

  • Marshalltown Public Library: Marshalltown city residents within Ward 1 and Ward 2.
  • Redeemer Lutheran Church: Marshalltown city residents within Ward 3 and Ward 4.
  • Albion Fire Station: MCSD residents within Marietta, Bangor, Liscomb and Taylor Townships.
  • Le Grand Community Building: MCSD residents within Green Castle, Le Grand, and Marion Townships.
  • Laurel City Hall: MCSD residents within Logan, Washington, Jefferson, and Timber Creek Townships.

The voted PPEL on the ballot generates funds school districts can only use for infrastructure and equipment repairs, purchases, and improvements. This levy must be approved by a district’s voters every 10 years.

An approved PPEL will not increase MCSD’s overall tax levy of $15.99 per $1,000 of taxable property value. The district is positioned financially to offset a higher voted PPEL rate with reductions to other levies, allowing the overall rate to remain flat. MCSD’s tax rate peaked in 2021 at $18.35 and has declined in the years since.
