A pair of water rate increases approved in April by Iola City Council members, were rejected Tuesday after the Council was asked to vote a second time on the matter.

The rejection may trigger budget cuts that extend well beyond the water fund, Mayor Jon Wells and City Administrator Sid Fleming warned.

The second vote was necessary because of a state law that requires cities with eight-member city councils to have at least five affirmative votes in order to pass ordinances.
