Keokuk has started talking about developing its own multi-sport complex.
The discussions began with a request to upgrade Rees Park. Mayor Tom Marion says the idea is to prepare the park for softball games or practices.
“We will put the fencing back up and we will disc the infield,” says Marion. “We will also bring some clay sand and put it on the infield and fix the bleachers.”
The city council reached a consensus to proceed with the project, which could cost several thousand dollars.
