Iola City Council members indicated a willingness to find a compromise when it comes to financial support of Allen County Regional Hospital.

At issue is the annual $300,000 payment the city makes to the county, part of an agreement between the two entities to help facilitate the hospital’s construction in 2012 and 2013.

The payments, which come from sales tax revenues, are scheduled to expire at the end of this year, in line with the expiration of the city’s existing half-cent sales tax.
