County commissioners will allow property near the Allen County Regional Airport to be annexed by the City of Iola in order to access the city's sewer system, but they want the city to agree to a few conditions.

Allen County commissioners this week decided their hopes for the future outweigh concerns about annexing part of the county airport into the City of Iola.

They agreed to a deal that will connect the Allen County Regional Airport to Iola’s sewer system — with a few stipulations. 

The county is offering an interlocal agreement that would annex 75 acres northwest of the airport in exchange for tapping into the city’s sewer system.
