Iolans may get a break on past-due utility bills, due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

City Council members  Monday spoke in favor of waiving fees associated with utility reconnections for as long as the city remains under an executive order issued last week by Gov. Laura Kelly.

In the order, Kelly prohibited utility disconnections and evictions until her emergency declaration is lifted.
