Directing the City Manager to develop a short and long-term plan for expediting the issuing of citations for solid waste code and illegal dumping violations and increasing enforcement of these activities and to present the plan to the Council within 30 days of adoption of this resolution.

WHEREAS, it is the desire of the City Council to increase the timeliness of issuing citations to violators and to improve the overall enforcement of the solid waste code and illegal dumping violations; NOW, THEREFORE

 

BE IT RESOLVED BY THE COUNCIL OF KANSAS CITY:
