Lee County has changed its mind about giving money to Keokuk Area Hospital.
The Lee County Board of Supervisors will wait until next week to decide whether to make a hefty contribution to an economic development project.
Chairman Ernie Schiller wants to remain on the Lee County Board of Supervisors for four more years.
Mary Van Pelt of Montrose wants taxpayers to learn what it costs Lee County to offer all services in both of its county seats, Keokuk and Fort Madison, versus in one location.
They will have the opportunity to do just that during an informational forum, organized by Van Pelt, that will begin at 7:00 P.M. on Tuesday, Mar. 25 at Central Lee's K-8 building.
The Lee County Board of Supervisors has denied a request from Keokuk Area Hospital for a $100,000 contribution on a 3-2 vote.
