Des Moines leaders agreed to an unprecedented land swap this month. The City of Des Moines gets to sell the land where the old YMCA sits.
The Y gets to renovate the County’s former convention complex and the County gets the City’s old JC Penney building for court space.
None of this deal would have happened without the blessing of the Polk County Board of Supervisors.
These five elected officials are the final say in the most populated county in Iowa.
This week, Republican supervisor Bob Brownell spends Three Minutes in the Chair.
Brownell represents the northwest section of Polk County. The board meets each Tuesday morning at 9:30 a.m.
