Iola water consumers will begin paying 7.5 percent more for water starting June 1, followed by another 10 percent increase Jan. 1.
The rate hikes followed an extensive discussion Monday among Iola City Council members, one which led to a split vote as to whether to approve the hikes.
The 3-3 vote sent the matter to Mayor Jon Wells, who voted in favor of the increase.
