Iola City Council members agreed Monday to hold off on decisions regarding electric and water rate increases, and whether city policies regarding past-due bills should be changed.

The consensus to wait on both came because more information was needed in one case (how adapting a “Cold Weather Rule” and potential payment installment plans for past-due bills would affect the budget) and more council members were needed on the other (utility rates.)

 The Council heard from Angela Murphy of Allen County Connectors, a group of local volunteers who assist local citizens in need find resources in order to make ends meet.
