Iolans went to the polls on three occasions over a span of 18 months in 2009 and 2010 to come up with the citys existing eight-member city council.
Since that time, the lack of interest among citizens to run for Council seats has prompted some members to rethink the idea of keeping such a large governing body.
Council members have touched on the idea of downsizing, most recently in May 2017, but have not pulled the trigger, in part because of the lack of public demand to do so.
