Unseasonably warm weather this winter means bad business for the city of Iola.

With temperatures dipping below freezing only a handful of days since Old Man Winter arrived in mid-December, Iolans aren’t using as much gas and electricity to heat their homes and apartments — and City Hall is feeling it.

City Administrator Carl Slaugh said city revenues from gas and electricity sales won’t meet the levels of the last two years if warm weather holds up.
