A vacancy in Iola’s code enforcement office will be filled, although City Council members still want a discussion about staffing levels within the city.
Council members heard an impassioned plea Monday from Code Enforcement Officer Gregg Hutton about the importance of filling a position vacated earlier this month by the departure of Deanna Helms.
Council members suggested at their Jan. 13 meeting the city hold off on filling the position to determine whether it could be dissolved as a budget-saver.
