Group seeks lenience for Iola utility customers



February 19, 2016 - 12:00 AM

Iola City Council members will hear a plea Monday to change its policies regarding past-due utility accounts.

The Allen County Connectors — a group of local volunteers who assist citizens in need — are asking Iola to adopt a “cold weather rule” to largely prevent utility shutoffs in the winter months.

The group also is requesting the city begin allowing payment plans in which overdue utility amounts are paid off in monthly installments.
