    Were there any citizens, and, if so, how many, at this last SW Jo. Co. Consolidated Zoning Board to object to the asphalt plant?

  2. Jerry L Kellogg Sr says:

    About 35 concerned citizens attended the July 23 meeting in Gardner. Approximately ten addressed the board members, applicants and county officials. Many will attend the Board of County Commissioners meeting in Olathe on August 28.
