NEIGHBORHOOD DEVELOPMENT AND HOUSING COMMITTEE recommends "ADVANCE AND DO PASS AS A COMMITTEE SUBSTITUTE, DEBATE"
Councilwoman Deb Hermann stated that part of the proposed ordinance had been removed from the original document. Legislative information regarding the scrap metal section of the ordinance will be introduced at the next meeting of the committee. There were too many issues involved with the section. Mr. Park stated that the ordinance in question deals with auto salvage yards and salvage vehicles. State laws allow a person to salvage a car that is at least seven years old without a title. This ordinance establishes some guidelines for salvage dealers and salvage yards. Public testimony was taken on this item.

060951
Authorizing a nine-month $319,651.00 contract with Kansas City Free Health Clinic to provide ambulatory/outpatient medical care to eligible clients in the Kansas City Eligible Metropolitan Area (EMA) who meet Ryan White Title I guidelines.


PUBLIC SAFETY AND NEIGHBORHOODS COMMITTEE recommends "HOLD OFF AGENDA"
This item was recommended for placement on the semi-annual docket. This item had a section that needed to be re-bidded and would take an indefinite amount of time to complete the process.
 
 Staff will give the monthly report on progress within the Animal Safety and Health Division. Lesley Fosberg, Acting Animal Control Manager, stated that one field supervisor had been hired to date. Over 100 people that completed applications during the job fair had been certified and placed on a list of potential hirees. There process to hire and train a new employee would take the section beyond the deadline set down by council. The number of animals brought to the shelter continues to grow and the number of pit bulls put down also continues to grow. Once again Councilwoman Hermann requested that the hiring of new staff members be made a priority. Rick Osborn of "Safe Streets" will make a presentation on Safe Streets. Rick Osborn did a slide presentation before the council explaining the reason why he got involved in the reasons for violent crime in Kansas City, Mo but also across the country. Councilwoman Hermann asked if Mr. Osborn would make a presentation before the full council at some later date. There may be a general discussion of current Neighborhood Issues.
