With minimal splash compared to past debates, Iola City Council members approved a series of water rate increases Monday.

The price of water will increase 10 percent beginning May 1, another 10 percent in May 2021 and then 5 percent in 2022.

The rate hikes, approved Monday in a 5-2 vote, are geared to replenish the city’s beleaguered water fund.
