The search for a new Iola city administrator will continue, even though the list of applicants is down, likely because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Interim City Administrator Corey Schinstock told Council members Monday roughly a dozen applicants have filed to replace Sid Fleming, who resigned in March. Representatives from Strategic Government Resources, the city’s search firm, have hopes for 40 applications by the April 21 filing deadline. 

With the pandemic affecting virtually all walks of life, HGR now expects the number to be about 20 by the filing deadline.
