RESOLUTION NO. 120748

 

Expressing the intent of the Mayor and Council with regard to the use of the proceeds of a 2% tax on the revenue from outdoor advertising structures.

 

WHERAS, Ordinance No. 120722 provides for submission to the qualified voters of the City for their approval at a general election on Tuesday, November 6, 2012, the question of whether to enact a 2% tax on the revenue from outdoor advertising structures; and

 

WHEREAS, the City Manager has estimated that this tax would provide the City tax revenue in the approximate amount of $112,000.00 per year; NOW, THEREFORE,

 

BE IT RESOLVED BY THE COUNCIL OF KANSAS CITY:

 

That the Mayor and Council hereby express their intent to budget the revenue received from a 2% tax on the gross annual revenue from outdoor advertising structures, if approved by the voters at the November 6, 2012 election, as follows:

 

1.      Addition of one new full-time equivalent position at a full cost (salary and benefits) of $60,000.00 to handle administration and enforcement of the City’s current and any future billboard regulations.

 

2.      The remaining $52,000.00 of new resources would be used to conduct a comprehensive census and condition assessment of the City’s inventory of billboards.

 

3.      Any remaining funds would be used to begin the process of abating those billboards not in compliance with current City regulations.

 

4.      In future years, the dedicated staff person would maintain the inventory of the City’s billboards by conducting an annual inspection and continuing the ongoing effort at maintaining compliance with the City’s ordinance. Eventually, this additional staff person could also focus on other zoning or other neighborhood needs identified by the City as the number of non-compliant billboards was reduced or eliminated.
