Lee County Courthouse

Lee County is poised to address a glaring deficiency when it comes to public safety.

The group that has been reviewing Lee County government services has finished its work and made a recommendation to the Board of Supervisors.

A piece of history has been added to a courthouse in southeast Iowa.

Gary Stephenson of Fort Dodge, IA recently approached the Lee County Board of Supervisors about his effort to place a copy of the U.S. Constitution in every courthouse in Iowa.

Stephenson is continuing a project started by his late father.  They have combined to place constitutions in about ¾ of Iowa’s courthouses.

The latest is now in the south Lee County Courthouse in Keokuk.  It will hang in the 1st floor hallway of the building.
