A coming property tax increase, the upsurge in apartment projects and the city’s response to COVID-19 were just some of the the topics covered Tuesday evening at a Post forum for candidates vying for three seats on the Overland Park City Council covering the southern part of the city.

In Ward 4, incumbent Councilmember Stacie Gram, who was appointed in 2020, is defending the seat against retired police officer Scott Mosher.
