Keokuk, IA – The Iowa National Guard says it will build a taller fence around its armory in Keokuk.
The current chain-link fence is 6' tall. It is topped with strands of barbed wire.
The Keokuk Board of Adjustment ruled, in July, that the chain-link portion must be 8' tall. The panel was worried about children getting their hands caught in the fence while walking to the Keokuk Aquatics Center.
The city filed an injunction in District Court against the Iowa National Guard.
