Lee County Wants Property Back on Tax Rolls

Keokuk, IA – Lee County will sell six properties in Keokuk and Fort Madison. A public auction will be June 16 at 5:30 p.m. in the South Lee County Courthouse in Keokuk. The county acquired the six lots because property taxes were not being paid on them. The last time the county held an auction like this was in 2003. The Board of Supervisors will hold a public hearing June 7 in preparation for the auction.
