  • Support DMACC Levy 4

    Steve I am writing to you to take exception to your House of Wood Article on the Des Moines Area Community College.

  • Support DMACC Levy 3
    To the Editor:
    I read your hit piece on the upcoming vote to continue the tax levy for DMACC and would like to correct your “facts”. The first point you make is that there isn’t a DMACC campus in Knoxville and there will never be one. There is a DMACC campus in Knoxville. It is an integral part of an existing Knoxville Community School building.

  • Support DMACC Levy 2
    To the Editor:
    Next Tuesday you have the opportunity to vote yes to continue the two levies that help support Des Moines Area Community College.  These levies are existing levies that total 26.5 cents per $1,000 of assessed value.  It will not raise taxes.

  • Support DMACC Levy
    To the Editor:
    I am writing as a member of the DMACC Board of Trustees for 10 years. I have seen DMACC grow substantially to meet the needs of many additional students and the requests of businesses.
