One of the potential hurdles to extending the Missouri Pacific Trail through east Iola has been cleared, even before the project has entered the city’s radar.

Iola City Council members approved the purchase of a parcel of land at 308 N. First St. for $1,500.

The land held a recently demolished house that had been condemned by the city because of its unsafe condition.
