Amending Chapter 44, Municipal Correctional Institution, Code of Ordinances by repealing Section 44-10, Pardons and enacting in lieu thereof one new section of like number and subject matter pertaining to pardons.


NEIGHBORHOOD DEVELOPMENT AND HOUSING COMMITTEE recommends "ADVANCE AND DO PASS"
City Attorney Galen Beaufort talked about this ordinance request. Changes to the section included where pardons are to be recorded and that the mayor shall issue a response within 60 days had been taken out of the ordinance. Councilman Jim Glover asked how many pardons did the city process in a year? Les Washington, Director of Neighborhood and Community Services, stated that there may be between 3 to 6 a year with upwards of 60% being granted. Councilwoman McFadden-Weaver asked if the city had a plan where the city could begin to bond people out who have municipal violations? Would the ordinance give the city the opportunity to get into the bonding business? City Attorney Galen Beaufort answered no regarding plans of the city becoming a bonding agency and the ordinance did not address that issue. The council might want to consider other legislation on bonding. He wasn't sure that the city would want to get into the bonding business because of all the legalities involved.

Amending Chapter 10, Code of Ordinances, entitled Alcoholic Beverages by repealing Section 10-215, Consents not required, by changing the exemptions to include an additional property.


NEIGHBORHOOD DEVELOPMENT AND HOUSING COMMITTEE recommends "HOLD ON AGENDA"
This item was held a week in order for committee members and sponsors to communicate with additional agencies/businesses that may be affected by this ordinance. Judy Hadley, Regulated Industries, testified on this ordinance request. The areas in question are the West Bottoms and the Zona Rosa development projects. The ordinance is a request to have the waiting period exempted within these two areas. The only objections thus far was the existence of a halfway house run by the State of Missouri in the West Bottoms. The density issue is a question for the Zona Rosa area. Jim Glover asked who requested the exemptions? Ms. Hadley stated that Council members Bonnie Sue Cooper and John Fairfield were the sponsors of the ordinance.

040306
Amending Chapter 10, Code of Ordinances, by repealing Section 10-211, Number of retail alcoholic beverage licenses, by changing the exemptions to include an additional property.


NEIGHBORHOOD DEVELOPMENT AND HOUSING COMMITTEE recommends "ADVANCE AND DO PASS"
This ordinance would exempt the Zona Rosa area from the limit of liquor establishments receiving permits based on density. The density is at a maximum level. According to Judy Hadley, Regulated Industries, the number of licenses approved is based on population. Currently, this area is being developed so the population is not indicative of the potential growth of the area. There was also a suggestion of placing a three year period on the ordinance to see if the development plan and growth projections is working. Councilwoman Deb Hermann asked if staff ever talked to the development department about any possible projections on future growth? Ms. Hadley answered no.

(Sub.)
Amending Chapter 10, Code of Ordinances, by repealing Section 10-212, Distance from churches or schools, by changing the exemptions to include an additional property.


NEIGHBORHOOD DEVELOPMENT AND HOUSING COMMITTEE recommends "ADVANCE AND DO PASS AS A COMMITTEE SUBSTITUTE"
Judy Hadley, Regulated Industries, stated that this ordinance would grandfather in a location regarding a business located 3900 Prospect wanting to move across the street. The liquor establishment wants to relocate to another corner and would like to expand the facility to include a gas station and provide more space for a grocery store. Because the location would be less than the 300 foot requirement from a church, the division wants to grandfather the new location in because the ownership has not changed. In the event of new ownership, the new owner(s) would have to comply with all liquor requirements, including footage away from a church or school.
