Keokuk

The Keokuk City Council has changed its collective mind when it comes to new contracts for most city employees.

Some Keokuk residents will pay less for sewer services this summer.

The Keokuk City Council doesn’t know how to proceed with a rental fee schedule for a popular city facility.

The upcoming Grand Avenue project in Keokuk will involve more than just pouring concrete.

It appears Keokuk is getting a good deal on a multi-million dollar street project.

Jason Parrott's guest on Emphasis, this week, is Barb Casady, who is the coordinator for the new Volunteer Center of the Big River United Way.

Keokuk is taking steps to borrow more than $10-million.

Keokuk’s mayor says it makes financial sense to repair the city’s wastewater treatment plant, compared to replacing the facility.

One southeast Iowa mayor knows how Iowa can spend some of its “extra” money.

Cities throughout the Tri-State region are seeing an increase in broken water lines.

Keokuk Depot Restoration Continues

Nov 26, 2012

The upcoming winter months will not stop the ongoing work at the former Keokuk Union Depot.

A Keokuk man faces up to 25-years in prison for his role in a fatal hit-and-run late last week.

The former Eagles building in downtown Keokuk will be open for business in January.

Crews started renovating the building at the corner of 4th and Blondeau Streets in March.

The two-story structure will feature both commercial and residential space.

Joyce Glasscock is the Executive Director of Main Street Keokuk, Inc.  A subsidiary of MSK, Keokuk Downtown Properties, owns the building.

The Keokuk City Council has received multiple complaints about outdoor concerts at L-Treyn’s Bar and Grill over the last few years.

The panel’s only response, though, occurred in May 2011 when it required outdoor concerts end at 1:00 A.M. at all establishments where alcohol is sold.

The issue resurfaced during Thursday night’s workshop.

The result was 3rd Ward Alderman Ron Payne proposing the concerts end by either 10:00 P.M. or 11:00 P.M., depending on the night.
