Iola City Council members said thanks, but no thanks, once again to a potential solar farm to supplement the city’s energy portfolio.

Council members voted, 5-3, to reject overtures from Priority Power and POW Solar LLC to build a 4-megawatt solar plant west of the Russell Stover candy plant.

This marks the second time in three years the city has said no to such a plan.
