Authorizing Amendment No. 3 to the Stakeholder Contribution Agreement with the Mid-America Regional Council for the Missouri River Degradation Feasibility Study in the amount of a $31,500.00; and recognizing this ordinance as having an accelerated effective date.

Andy Shively, Chief Engineering Officer, Water Services, testified that this ordinance would authorize a third amendment to the Steakholder Contribution Agreement with Mid-America Regional Council (MARC) for the Missouri River Degradation Feasibility Study. The Water Services Department has entered into a Stakeholder Contribution Agreement with the Mid-American Regional Council (MARC) in support of a feasibility study, being conducted by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, to determine the causes and potential solutions to address the degradation of the Missouri River bed. Amendment No. 3 will provide for additional funding to increase the City's share of the feasibility study costs. The overall estimated amount of the study remains at $6,841,725.00 with annual federal appropriations equally matched by the 18 stakeholders. Each amendment represents the City's amount for our stakeholder portion in order to match the federal amount based on total stakeholder contributions from all other stakeholders. This ordinance is anticipated to match the last of the federal funds for Kansas City's share with the stakeholders share to complete the study. This feasibility study is looking at the Missouri River from Rulo, Nebraska to St. Louis, Missouri with the Kansas City, Jackson County, Missouri reach residing in Council District 4, but the degradation affects the entire metropolitan area.
