Hotel project still on tap



May 2, 2018 - 11:00 PM

With work about to start on rebuilding a seven-mile stretch of U.S. 169 south of Iola, a piece of local development will be delayed.

Bill Michaud, seeking to build a Sleep Inn and Suites franchise on the east edge of Iola, said his plans are being deferred slightly because of the road work.

“So much of our business relies on traffic from the highway,” Michaud, a resident of Fort Scott, told the Register. “We don’t want to open until we have the best possible opportunity for success.”
