Iola City Council members want to see the fine print before deciding whether they’ll endorse a proposed solar field project to add to the city’s energy portfolio.

Council members voted 3-3 — requiring a tie-breaking vote from Mayor Jon Wells — to move forward with Texas-based POW Solar LLC through the planning phase.

The city retains authority to call off the project before any funds are obligated.
