Summer 2015

Keota ranks Number 1 in America's Top 10 Most Extroverted Cities, according to Pyco of Redmond, Washington, a psychological type marketing firm. Exactly 61.639% of Keota's adult population were scored as extroverts.

The cemetery just received a nice enhancement with the gravestones. The city was granted funds from the WCRF for this project, with matching funds from the city. The project took about a month to complete and 147 stones were repaired. The Keota police truck also received an upgrade in technology for writing and filing tickets. The new system allows the city to go green and be on the same network as other community's and state departments. The KCCEF and WCRF funded this project entirely between the two of them. The city would like to thank both organizations for the funds and interest in bettering the community.
