The mystery of Des Moines' legal settlements

Illustration: Sarah Grillo/Axios

Des Moines City Council often approves legal settlements without providing the public with some important info, like the cost and basic facts of a case.

Why it matters: Citizens deserve to know more about how their money is being spent. Ideally, that information should be provided before council votes, since the total payouts over a calendar year are significant.

This architectural gem has enviable resort-like views from almost every room. And if you've got an extra $7M, it could be yours.

The exact address is 4937 Lyford Cay Road. At 5,662 square feet, it has 4 beds and 4.5 baths.

Design: The home features elegant, clean lines and a lot of natural materials (exposed wood, stone), inspired by Frank Lloyd Wright's signature style. The large windows also help create an indoor-outdoor feel throughout the house and a cohesiveness between the structure and setting.

  • It was designed by architect Sol Fleishman and built by Monogram Builders.

Highlights: Chef's kitchen, stunning architectural details, home office, dreamy resort-like owner's suite, pool, boat dock, expansive patios.

Price reduction: The house has been on the market 100 days, according to Zillow. It was first listed in November at $7.75M.

Listed by: Nick Janovsky at Premier Sotheby’s International Realty.

At least 67 Palestinians and seven Israelis have been killed in fighting between Israel's military and Hamas since Monday, per Reuters.

The big picture: The worst aerial exchanges of fire between Israel and Hamas since 2014 continued into early Thursday. It come days after escalating violence in Jerusalem that injured hundreds of Palestinians and several Israeli police officers during protests over the planned evictions of Palestinian families from their homes.
