Park work begins

Crews from SE-Kan Asphalt have begun resurfacing the hardtop areas of Riverside Park.
Iola Street and Alley Superintendent Dan Leslie said the focus will start on areas around the newly rebuilt Iola Municipal Pool.
“We are asking for a little patience and understanding with the park traffic,” Leslie said.
The work around the pool should be finished in time for Monday’s grand opening celebration, Leslie said, but work will be ongoing elsewhere in the park through next week.
Crews originally hoped to begin applying asphalt last week, Leslie said, but rainy weather delayed a SE-Kan project elsewhere in southeast Kansas.
