Keokuk Selling City Park

Keokuk, IA – The Keokuk City Council still has some questions about a proposal to sell part of a city park. The council has voted to sell more than 3 acres of Tolmie Park for about $400,000 dollars to a St. Louis-based development firm. One provision of the deal is that the council must approve the final agreement because aldermen have not seen that document. City Attorney Tom Marion says he is still reviewing the development group's response to the city's original proposal.
