Rushville, IL – Rushville will soon receive more than two million dollars to build new housing for low to moderate income seniors. It'll also receive a few-hundred thousand dollars to make life-safety upgrades to existing homes.
Keokuk, IA – The Keokuk City Council was ready to rebuild Grand Avenue (4th - 15th Streets) earlier this year. The panel's sentiment changed, though, when the construction bids came in much higher than anticipated.
The council decided it would re-bid the project with revised specifications in an attempt to reduce construction costs. A bout of severe weather, this summer, then led to talk of delaying it so flood-damaged roads could be repaired.
