Iola City Council members voted to give customers 15 days to pay their utility bills after the governor’s prohibition on utility shutoffs expires Friday.

Iolans whose utilities are subject to be disconnected because of non-payment will have 15 days to get their accounts caught up once a state order prohibiting disconnections expires.

City Council members on Monday set the 15-day grace period following another extensive discussion on how many, and how severely, Iolans are behind adversely affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Gov. Laura Kelly’s executive order prohibiting utility shutoffs expires on Friday.
