The effort to build a multi-sport complex in Fort Madison is getting some help with some unanticipated expenses.
Election Day is less than three weeks away, but there will be no rush to the polls for thousands of Lee County residents.
Lee County now knows some of the concerns residents have about the production plant Iowa Fertilizer Company plans to build near Wever.
Lori Beckert lives between Wever and Fort Madison. She attended the Lee County Board of Supervisors meeting on Oct. 2 for one reason.
Beckert asked the board for a special meeting in Wever about the fertilizer plant so residents and future neighbors can get answers to their questions.
The supervisors said they wanted to see a list of questions/topics for the meeting before they would set a time/date/location.
Some Lee County residents want answers about the $1.4-billion fertilizer plant scheduled to be built near Wever by 2015.
Southeast Iowa voters who do not want to wait for Election Day have started casting their ballots. There are no restrictions on who can vote early.
