RESOLUTION - Stating the intent of the City Council regarding staffing and contracting approaches for a requested audit of the Tax Increment Financing Commission of Kansas City, Missouri.


PLANNING AND ZONING COMMITTEE recommends "HOLD ON AGENDA (8/4/2010)"
Joe Gonzales, Executive Director of the Tax Increment Financing Commission, stated that the commission had finished a draft scope of audit criteria for the person(s) and/or agency that would be conducting the audit of the TIF Commission. Councilwoman Hermann stated that there should have been more input into the creation of the scope from City staff and other council members. She wanted to have no questions arise about the commission members having a scope statement created by the person who appoint the members to the board. The mayor stated that all council members were welcome to talk with the commission members regarding their recommendations of what needed to go into the scope statement. Some TIF commissioners were on hand to talk about the scope statement for the audit. Lance McDonald, TIF Commissioner, was opposed to the idea of having city staff make suggestions on how to conduct their agency's audit. Scott Jacobey, Jackson County TIF Commission, also opposed the idea of having input from staff or council on how the audit should be conducted. Councilwoman Gottstein reminded everyone that although the TIF Commission would be making recommendations, the City Council has the final say in what would follow. Councilwoman Hermann suggested holding this item for two weeks and possibly transferring it to the Planning and Zoning Committee for further and future testimony.
