RESOLUTION NO. 081074

 

Expressing support for Missouri Constitutional Amendment No. 4.

 

WHEREAS, on November 4, 2008, the voters will have the opportunity to approve Missouri Constitutional Amendment No. 4; and

 

WHEREAS, this constitutional amendment allows unused state stormwater grant and loan funds to be reallocated to cities such as Kansas City that actively use the Missouri stormwater grant and loan program; and

 

WHEREAS, the amendment would eliminate the requirement that funds must be offered as 50 percent grant and 50 percent loan; and

 

WHEREAS, the amendment creates a revolving fund for the repayment of loans made through these bonds and ensures that the bond funds are used for stormwater projects into the future; and

 

WHEREAS, although this amendment will not solve the wastewater and stormwater infrastructure funding issues confronting the City, it does improve upon a valuable tool on which the City relies for stormwater funding; NOW, THEREFORE,

 

BE IT RESOLVED BY THE COUNCIL OF KANSAS CITY:

 

That the City hereby expresses its support for Missouri Constitutional Amendment No. 4.
