Failure to participate halts city’s business


March 15, 2016 - 12:00 AM

For the first time in its five-year history, the Iola City Council failed to meet because too many members were absent.

When only four councilmen arrived for Monday’s planned meeting — Donald Becker, Nancy Ford, Beverly Franklin and Jon Wells — that left them one short of the required five to officially start the meeting.

“We cannot conduct any official business or meetings,” Becker noted, “so we have to adjourn.”
