While Eastern Iowa’s two largest school districts — Cedar Rapids and Iowa City — reinstated a mask mandate this week for all students, staff and visitors, other area districts are waiting for a decision from their school board or have decided to forgo a mask mandate for now.
The home, at 330 Eighth Ave., is the first house renovated as part of the Marion “Community Build” program. The effort is a partnership involving the city of Marion, Marion Independent School District and the Linn-Mar Community School District. Under it, the Marion Economic Development Corp. buys deteriorating homes and students fully renovate them for sale to families with low-to-middle incomes.
