In the last 30 days, the City of Iola has hauled away thousands of truckloads of debris for individual households — twice.
The first was the city’s biannual citywide pickup in mid-April, where residents left out anything from old carpet to rusted fencing as well as lawn clippings and limbs.
The second clean-up — still ongoing — is after the terrific May 3 thunderstorm that uprooted massive trees, stripped limbs and downed power lines. A good chunk of the city lost power for most of the day, with some parts going two days.
