Olathe’s regularly scheduled City Council meeting on Tuesday, Nov. 2 has been canceled. City officials gave no reason for the cancellation, although it is worth noting that Tuesday is also Election Day in municipal races. 

The agenda that would have been considered is not available online. However, on Thursday, the Johnson County Commission indicated in its own meeting documents the city of Olathe was set to hold a public hearing on Tuesday pertaining to BlueScope Properties Group, LLC’s request for nearly $77 million in industrial revenue bonds and a 10-year, 50% tax phase-in for the construction of more than 640,000 square-feet in industrial development at 159th Street and Lone Elm Road. A master resolution related to the full scope of the project broken into phases was also on the table on Nov. 2. It is not clear when that public hearing be held and the resolution considered instead.  

Election Day features races for three seats on the City Council and three seats on the Olathe Board of Education. Fred Sherman, the county election commissioner, said every Johnson County citizen has a ballot to cast. The polls close at 7 p.m. on Tuesday.
