RESOLUTION NO. 010817

Directing the City Manager to establish the Nuisance Property Owner Prevention Program to identify individuals convicted of municipal offenses related to violations of the Nuisance and Property Maintenance Codes.

 

WHEREAS, there exists within the City of Kansas City buildings and properties which because of dilapidation, structural defects, litter or other conditions, constitute a general blight upon the neighborhood or surrounding properties; and

 

WHEREAS, such conditions not only render our neighborhoods unsafe, unsanitary, and unsightly, but they are also inimical to the general welfare of the City as a whole; and

 

WHEREAS, there are irresponsible property owners that choose to ignore the Codes of the City and thus become repeat offenders of municipal law as it relates to property maintenance and nuisance issues; and

 

WHEREAS, the Council has determined that the goal of discouraging property owners to allow the existence of blighting conditions to remain in the Citys neighborhoods is best served by identifying individuals convicted for such municipal violations; and

 

WHEREAS, a Nuisance Property Owner Prevention Program will identify property owners with at least three properties containing code violations constituting a nuisance and which have been convicted in the Municipal Housing Court; and

 

WHEREAS, the Program will also identify and recognize property owners and developers that abate code violations and renovate properties that have been declared a nuisance; NOW, THEREFORE,

 

BE IT RESOLVED BY THE COUNCIL OF KANSAS CITY:

 

That the Council hereby directs the City Manager to establish the Nuisance Property Owner Prevention Program identifying individuals convicted of municipal offenses related to violations of the Nuisance and Property Maintenance Code.
