Chairman and Mayor cut red ribbon for new CNG Station

The city of Olathe and Johnson County Government celebrated the opening of a new Compressed National Gas (CNG) fueling station today, located at 1385 S. Robinson Dr. in Olathe.

The purpose is to identify factors that affect the health of our residents. At least 150 volunteers are needed on Saturday, Sept. 8, 2018, to go to preselected neighborhoods and survey citizens about their health and the health of the community.
