RESOLUTION NO. 100321, AS FURTHER AMENDED

 

Stating the Council’s intention to submit to the voters for their approval a sales tax for capital improvements and operations for public safety at a rate of ¼% rather than the possible ½% under Section 94.577, RSMo, in the event that Senate Bill 981 or House Bill 2250 become law and the Council’s intention to treat any such sales tax revenue as supplemental funding for the Kansas City, Missouri Police Department.

 

 

WHEREAS, the City currently imposes a ¼% sales tax which must be used for capital improvements and is used for capital improvements for public safety; and

 

WHEREAS, the current tax will expire June 30, 2011; and

WHEREAS, Senate Bill 981 and House Bill 2250 (the “Amendment”) would authorize the City to impose a one-eighth, one-fourth, three-eighths, or one-half of one percent sales tax under Section 94.577, RSMo, for both capital improvements and operations for public safety, upon approval of the voters; and

 

WHEREAS, if the Amendment is signed into law, the Council intends to submit a proposition to the voters to renew a sales tax pursuant to the Amendment, at a rate of ¼%, not ½%; NOW, THEREFORE,

 

BE IT RESOLVED BY THE COUNCIL OF KANSAS CITY:

 

Section 1. That, if Senate Bill 981 or HB 2250 is signed into law, the Mayor and Council hereby state that if they submit a proposition to the voters to renew a sales tax for capital improvements and operations for public safety, it will be at a rate of ¼%., rather than the possible ½%..

 

Section 2. That, if Senate Bill 981 or HB 2250 is signed into law, the Mayor and Council also hereby state their intention to treat any such sales tax revenue as supplemental funding for public safety capital improvements and operations needs and not to use such sales tax revenue as a means to reduce the overall percentage of General Funds budgeted for use for all personnel by the Kansas City, Missouri Police Department in the Fiscal Year 2010-11 Budget, unless such overall percentage reductions are imposed on all other General Fund supported City departments.
