Iola City Council members will seek public input before proceeding with any proposals on either making some members at large or changing their length of terms.
The governing body size has been discussed, off and on, for the past several months, because of turnover on the Council.
Three of the eight members Chase Martin, Daniel Mathew and Kim Peterson were appointed to their positions, while four members Ron Ballard, Nancy Ford, Eugene Myrick and Mark Peters ran without opposition, as was Mayor Jon Wells. Only Councilman Aaron Franklin was chosen by voters in a contested election.
