A couple more items of note from the area:
- Kansas’ Cold Weather Rule, which prevents utility companies from disconnecting services during the winter, ends on March 31. This means Kansans who are behind on their electricity or natural gas bills need to contact their utility companies to make payment arrangements before the end of the month. Otherwise, the utility company is able to disconnect services.
- The Johnson County Board of County Commissioners is holding a public hearing on solar amendments — as recommended by the planning commission in December — on April 4 at 2 p.m. at 10401 S.

A live broadcast will be available online here.
