The unquestioning love that cities throughout the Kansas City area have shown Goggle Fiber appears to have come to an end.

The Overland Park City Council has approved the Internet giants request for an indefinite continuance on a proposal that would have added Overland Park to the towns that have signed up for the high-speed Internet service. The council had expressed concerns over an indemnity clause in the legal agreement.
Since Google about two years ago picked Kansas City, Kan., and then Kansas City for its high speed fiberhoods, other area cities have eagerly signed on. Overland Parks reticence may prompt other cities to question what kind of deal they got.
