CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (AP) - Linn County supervisors have placed a proposed $40 million bond issue on the November ballot that would pay for water quality improvements and other projects to benefit parks and the environment.

KCRG-TV reports (https://bit.ly/2bmQYeE ) it would take a 60 percent super-majority to approve the measure, which would fund park improvements, trail work, water quality efforts and land protection.

The measure placed on the ballot Wednesday would cost about $27 annually for the owner of a home assessed at $140,000. It would end after 20 years.

Linn County Board Supervisor John Harris says he thinks the bond could help improve water quality, which he believes has worsened throughout the county.
