Keokuk Starts Using iPads

(L to R) 4th Ward Alderman Larry Mortimer, Alderman At-Large John Helenthal, Mayor Tom Marion, City Clerk Barb Barnes and Alderman At-Large Zane Zirkel test out their new iPads during Thursday night's workshop.

The city spent more than $6,000 to purchase the devices for the nine city council members along with the Mayor, City Clerk, Police Chief, Fire Chief, Public Works Director, and Community Development Director.
