This two-story house at 210 S. Buckeye will be moved next week and used as a remodel project for the construction trades students at the Regional Rural Technology Center.

Iola City Council members will discuss further Monday whether they wish to permanently remove stop lights from the intersection of U.S. 54 and Buckeye Street.

The lights will be taken down next week to accommodate the removal of a house next door to the Bowlus. It will be placed on a trailer and towed to a lot near Iola Middle School.

Council members noted at their Jan. 11 meeting the primary reason for the lights — to accommodate students walking to the Bowlus Fine Arts Center — is no longer pertinent now that classes aren’t held at the Bowlus.
