Allen County commissioners displayed leadership Tuesday when they kept the county’s future as their goal and decided to help an area hotelier set up shop in Iola.

Commissioners OK’d an investment of $167,500 to purchase land for a future 55-room hotel, the Iola Sleep Inn & Suites. 

A 2 percent tax assessed to hotel guests, which the City of Iola hopefully will approve, will pay back the county over the course of the next few years.
