August 8, 2018 - 10:36 AM

If Allen County commissioners were to agree, the old Lehigh Cement Company quarry just south of town would become a public recreation lake, with areas nearby included.

Jim Gilpin, representing Iola Industries, proposed Tuesday morning the county purchase the property, encompassing about 250 acres, for $1.4 million.

Commissioners didn’’t leap at the submission, but did indicate interest.
