RESOLUTION NO. 970475

 

Directing the initiation of a program, the "Slumlord of the Month", on the City Government Channel to identify individuals cited or convicted of municipal offenses related to violations of the Property Maintenance Code.

 

WHEREAS, there exists within the City of Kansas City buildings and properties which because of dilapidation, structural defects, litter or other conditions, constitute a general blight upon the neighborhood or surrounding properties; and

 

WHEREAS, such conditions not only render our neighborhoods unsafe, unsanitary, and unsightly, but they are also inimical to the general welfare of the City as a whole; and

 

WHEREAS, there are irresponsible property owners that choose to ignore the Codes of the City and thus become repeated offenders of municipal law as it relates to property maintenance and nuisance issues; and

 

WHEREAS, the Council has determined that the goal of discouraging property owners to allow the existence of blighting conditions to remain in the City's neighborhoods is best served by identifying individuals cited or convicted for such municipal violations; NOW, THEREFORE,

 

BE IT RESOLVED BY THE COUNCIL OF KANSAS CITY:

 

That the Council hereby directs the initiation of a program on the City Government Channel identifying individuals cited or convicted of municipal offenses related to property maintenance violations. Said program shall broadcast a video tape of the condition of the property, how often said property owner has been cited and for what violations and the name, address and telephone number of said owner. Said program and the party identified or entity shall be named and shall be known as the "Slumlord of the Month".
