Iola City Councilman Mark Peters will not attempt to simultaneously hold a seat on the Allen Community College Board of Trustees.

Peters told the Register after Monday’s Council meeting that he will decline the seat for the college.

Peters was overwhelmingly re-elected to his Council seat earlier this month, while also receiving the most write-in votes for a college board vacancy.
