Lee County citizen group will explore options for county services

LEE COUNTY, Ia. (WGEM) - A citizens' committee will meet for the first time Tuesday night in Lee County to begin exploring solutions to the controversy surrounding where to provide county services like the Department of Motor Vehicles.

An eight-member committee, that includes residents from across the county, will use research to decide what they think is the best financial solution to taxpayers.

Chairwoman Mary VanPelt says she wants the committee to decide on one of three possible solutions to recommend to the Lee County Board of Supervisors.

"Consolidating the courthouses into one location, putting the services all back in both locations or leaving the services like they are but put the DMV in Keokuk two days a week," Chairwoman Mary VanPelt said.

VanPelt says her committee hopes to bring a recommendation to the board by November.
