Some on county commission say they want more business owners on new Recovery Planning Task Force

The $5.2 million project to replace the city's high-pressure sodium streetlights with LEDs is expected to save the city $407,000 a year over the next decade, according to city staff. Above, a file photo of downtown Overland Park.

The first step to re-opening the county for business got bogged down for a bit Monday, as Johnson County Commissioners came to a standstill on who should be represented on the new Recovery Planning Task Force.

The county ended up with a fourteen-member committee eventually, but only after spirited objections from Commissioner Mike Brown, who said there weren’t enough business owners on it.
