Iola City Council members will look further into whether the city should amend its parking laws for residents who live downtown.

With Iola City Council members rejecting overtures from a developer in February to convert an old nursing home into an apartment complex here, the fate of the empty, crumbling building shouldn’t be neglected, one Council member said.

Councilwoman Nancy Ford, who lives near the old Iola Nursing Center on North Walnut Street, said the building is falling further into a state of disrepair, and meets many of the same criteria as condemned homes the city has ordered demolished.

“It’s time we roll on it,” Ford said Monday.
