Iola City Council members said Monday they were willing to continue supporting Allen County Regional Hospital, for the next year, in the form of a quarter-cent sales tax.
The sales tax, expected to generate around $300,000 in 2020, would be a continuation of the citys support of ACRH since before it was constructed in 2013, and would allow the county to transition to a renewed sales tax commitment of its own.
Larry Peterson, the hospitals interim chief executive officer, and trustees Loren Korte and Jim Gilpin visited with Council members Monday to brief them on ACRHs new lease agreement with Kansas City-based Saint Lukes Health Systems.
