The Keokuk City Council has agreed to sell roughly 4,000 square feet of space behind City Hall to a group affiliated with Main Street Keokuk for $750.
The land will allow for the construction of private garages for the high-end apartments proposed for the former Eagles building.
Mayor Tom Marion says the city will maintain control of a small portion of the land.
“We are still keeping, basically it says trading, but we are keeping three spaces,” says Marion, “at the end near 4th Street. We want to maintain what they do not need for city parking spaces.”
