Governing Body to meet virtually

The Overland Park City Council and City Council committees will begin meeting virtually this week in an effort to prevent the spread of coronavirus.

Mayor Carl Gerlach announced at Monday’s City Council meeting that all upcoming meetings will be held via Zoom.

“Due to the County’s new rules on COVID, we have decided to start holding Council meetings and committee meetings online,” said Mayor Carl Gerlach. “Staff is working hard to make that happen. From now on, we’ll be back online.”

Johnson County issued a new health order late last week limiting gathering sizes and extending the preexisting mask order.

Virtual meetings will begin with the Wednesday, Nov. 18 Finance, Administration and Economic Development Committee meeting.

Meeting locations, dates and times are always available on meeting agendas on the City website. Check upcoming agendas to see this information and links to virtual meetings.
