Iola’s annual chip-seal street maintenance program will cover the southeast quadrant of town later this summer.

Iola City Council members discussed the program at their regular meeting Tuesday, before agreeing to pay Ergon Asphalt & Emissions, Kansas City, Kan., an average of $11,039.85 per tanker load of emulsion oil.

The emulsion oil, when it dries, creates a flexible, water-resistant barrier on the roadway, better equipping the street from the free-thaw cycles in the winter and wet and dry conditions in the summer that often damage the street’s integrity.
