RESOLUTION NO. 900693, AS AMENDED

 

Expressing the intent of the City Council to re-examine councilmanic district lines following the publication of the official census figures and again in five (5) years.

..P

WHEREAS, Section 7 of the City Charter states that the City Council shall by ordinance adopt the lines for the six (6) councilmanic districts; and

 

WHEREAS, under existing state and federal law, the districts are to be drawn in such a manner that the population is to be as equal as practically possible; and

 

WHEREAS, official census figures will not be available until sometime in mid-1991; and

 

WHEREAS, following adoption of the official census figures, the various election authorities may be required to alter precinct and ward lines which will require further redistricting by the City Council; and

 

WHEREAS, due to the varying rates in which various areas of the City will probably sustain population growth in the future it is appropriate to re-examine the councilmanic district lines at sometime before the next census; NOW, THEREFORE,

 

BE IT RESOLVED BY THE COUNCIL OF KANSAS CITY:

 

Section A. That the City Council expresses its intent following the official publication of the 1990 census and any changes in ward and precinct lines as adopted by the various election authorities to adjust its councilmanic districts to comply with any new such ward and precinct lines.

 

Section B. That the Council is of the opinion that the City Council in 1995 should consider adjusting the councilmanic districts to reflect any subsequent major changes in the population of the City, and to that end the Council commits to appoint a committee of thirteen citizens to evaluate available numerical population data and to recommend to the City Council any numerical adjustments that it feels should be made at that time.
