(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.
Thursday night’s Keokuk City Council meeting had a feeling of Christmas as aldermen opened the boxes containing their new iPads.
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.
The iPads are for the specific position or office-holder, not the individuals. There is a device for the 3rd Ward Alderman, not for Ron Payne, for example.
