This item was held off the agenda. Assistant City Attorney Alan Holtkamp stated that the parties involved in the conflicts of this ordinance could not reach a compromise.

Estimating and appropriating additional bond proceeds in the amount of $426,000.00 in the KCMAC 2004B (Fund No. 340) in anticipation of an early September 2004 bond sale for construction of a new City Tow Lot; designating requisitioning authority; approving a $425,964.00 contract with Jury Design Inc.; and declaring the City intent to reimburse itself for the use of these proceeds.


NEIGHBORHOOD DEVELOPMENT AND HOUSING COMMITTEE recommends "HOLD ON AGENDA"
This item was held for three weeks. Testimony was taken from staff the week before. David Park, Assistant Director of Neighborhood and Community Services, brought additional photographs of possible locations for the tow lot. He also brought photographs of the current proposed location showing the typography of the area from different angles. Testimony was taken from residents of the Eastwood Hills Neighborhood. The following people testified against locating the tow lot at the proposed locations: Kathy Salisbury, Rob Wimmer and Nancy DeLourier. Sue Schubert and Patricia Mitchell were also on hand to lend their support against the ordinance. An issue of the location being located in a floodplain area was brought to the attention of the committee. Council members expressed their concerns if the allegations of the area being in a floodplain were correct. There was also concern that some other development may acquire the property and could build whatever they desired, if the area was not in a floodplain. Councilwoman Deb Hermann suggested that members of the community work with the various agencies involved in determining a design program.
