160773
Amending Chapter 10, Code of Ordinances by repealing Section 10-211, Number of retail alcoholic beverage licenses, and in acting in lieu thereof a new section of like number and subject matter which will allow an applicant within the proposed area to bypass the density requirement when applying for a retail sales-by-drink alcohol beverage license.


NEIGHBORHOODS AND PUBLIC SAFETY COMMITTEE recommends "ADVANCE AND DO PASS, DEBATE"
Councilwoman Jolie Justus and Jim Ready, Regulated Industries testified on the Ordinance. In this particular area, density does not allow for a retail sales-by-drink license to be issued due to the number of sales-by-drink liquor licenses that already exist in the area. The main reason for this is due to the areas close proximity to the many restaurants located on Southwest Boulevard which have retail sales-by-drink liquor licenses. Boulevard Brewing Company has continued to grow and expand in Kansas City, Missouri due to the success of the business. Part of this expansion included moving into a new Tours & Recreation building. Within the Tours & Recreation building, the first floor is where the brewery tours now begin while on the second floor there is a “Beer Hall” at which beer and food are served. However, density does not allow for this location to have a full retail sales-by-drink license as previously explained. If this proposed ordinance was passed, it would allow the Managing Officer of Boulevard Brewing Company to move forward in the liquor license application process to apply for and receive a full retail sales-by-drink license. It should be noted that the Managing Officer would still have to complete the full application process which includes receiving written consents from the majority of all eligible consenters.

160774
Amending Chapter 10, Code of Ordinances, by repealing Section 10-102, Eligibility and requirements for sales by drink license, and enacting in lieu thereof a new section of like number and subject matter which replaces language that was inadvertently removed from this section.


NEIGHBORHOODS AND PUBLIC SAFETY COMMITTEE recommends "DO PASS"
Jim Ready, Regulated Industries testified that on September 8, 2016, a revision of this ordinance was passed which allowed an applicant or managing officer of a grocery store to apply for and receive a retail sales-by-drink license. Subsection G was added and passed on December 18, 2014, under ordinance 141013. However, Municode was never updated to reflect this change so this subsection was inadvertently left out of the ordinance change made on September 8, 2016.

Accepting and approving a grant to the City for $123,487.00 from the United States Department of Homeland Security Assistance to Firefighters Grant (AFG) program under its Fire Prevention and Safety (FPS) component; estimating revenue in the amount of $123,487.00 in the Fire Sales Tax Fund; appropriating it to the USFA AFG/FPS Grant account in the Fire Sales Tax Fund; designating requisitioning authority; and recognizing this ordinance as having an accelerated effective date.


NEIGHBORHOODS AND PUBLIC SAFETY COMMITTEE recommends "ADVANCE AND DO PASS, DEBATE"
Richard Gist, Deputy Director of the KCFD testified that this grant from the Assistance to Firefighters Grants program reimburses expenses for acquisition of equipment, supplies, programs, and materials to upgrade all aspects of its fire prevention and safety programming. Equipment and programs acquired will greatly improve efficiency and effectiveness, and the reach of programs while substantially reducing the cost of delivery.
