IDAHO FALLS — Bonneville County voters have approved a measure to turn Eastern Idaho Technical College into a community college. So what’s next?
During the campaign, supporters touted EITC’s ready-made infrastructure and $5 million in community college seed money offered up by the 2017 Legislature as rationales for approving the proposal — which passed Tuesday with 71.4 percent support.
But transforming EITC into the College of Eastern Idaho still carries a variety of academic, infrastructural and financial implications.
