Nearly a decade ago 49 percent of Keokuk's households had a low to moderate income.
Mayor Tom Marion thinks that percentage has grown. And that could help Keokuk get more funding for city projects.
320 Keokuk households will be receiving these income surveys by mail in the next few days.
The city needs at least 300 of them to be filled out and returned as soon as possible.
The surveys will determine the amount of state and federal grant dollars Keokuk will receive.
If 51-percent or more of Keokuk's households have a low to moderate income...more money could be heading to the community.
