The Lee County Board of Supervisors is touting the benefits of a controversial decision.
There are plenty of residents, especially in Keokuk, who oppose the board’s decision to reorganize four county departments one year ago.
The offices of the Auditor and Treasurer are now located in Fort Madison while the Assessor and Recorder are in Keokuk.
The opposition is primarily linked to the lack of a drivers’ license facility in Keokuk.
The supervisors say the reorganization is paying off for the county.
