Default Change the county seat

Does anyone else here think that Montezuma should lose Poweshiek county's seat? Because Newton is closer, I went that direction to get my marriage license 3 years ago, but have to deal with Poweshiek when it comes to my driver's license, and vehicle licenses. Anyhow, Monty just seems to be dying - the whole place is an eyesore, and Grinnell is improving all the time. Is this even possible?

How embarrassing for me. If I had been asked, I would have guessed that Grinnell was Poweshiek's county seat.

If Montezuma is dying they will probably do all they can to stay the county seat.

As far as I can tell, being the county seat is the only thing going for it.

I live in a county seat and about the only benefit I see is the jobs it adds to Nevada. They're welcome to move it to Fernald, Iowa.

Most of the contact I have with them can be done electronically or via snail mail (paying property taxes and vehicle registrations).

I don't think the county seat should be moved. Grinnell, although is growing and changing, it is at the edge of Poweshiek county. That would cause everyone to drive across the county to do business, and that part of the county needs the law enforcement base where it is!
