Hotel seeks city, county help to buy land



July 21, 2017 - 12:00 AM

The fate of a proposed hotel on the east edge of Iola may be settled in August, when City Council members decide a request to help a developer purchase land for the site.

Bill Michaud of Baja Development Group, who owns a Sleep Inn & Suites franchise in Fort Scott, is seeking to build a similar facility in Iola, on a long-vacant parcel of land on the northwest corner of the U.S. 169-U.S. 54 bypass.

Michaud is approaching the Iola City Council and Allen County Commission to go in with him on the purchase of the land.
