Even city cows gotta eat.

An Iola property owner and the man who rents his land complained to Iola City Council members Monday about a recent visit from city code inspector Gregg Hutton, who cited rules about the allowable height of grass within city limits.

The property in question is the 40 acres of pasture north of Allen Community College, which has been used for decades to graze cattle, landowner Kyle Stephenson said. Stephenson said he thought some consideration should be given for the nature of the property and the length of time it has served as pasture.
