RESOLUTION NO. 001392

 

Amending Resolution No. 000496, As Amended, by extending the reporting date for the Charter Review Commission from March 1, 2001, to July 1, 2001, clarifying the scope of the Commissions review, and authorizing additional members.

 

WHEREAS, the Council expressed a desire to have the Charter Review Commission spend one year studying and preparing a report on possible changes to the City Charter; and

 

WHEREAS, the Charter Review Commission held its first meeting June 30, 2000; and

 

WHEREAS, to properly represent the important elements of the City, the need for a Commission of more than 12 members has become apparent; and

 

WHEREAS, to clarify the Commissions authorized scope of review the Council will expressly permit the Commission to analyze whether the current Charter should be amended in one or more ways, or whether any recommended changes should be reflected in a new Charter; NOW, THEREFORE,

 

BE IT RESOLVED BY THE COUNCIL OF KANSAS CITY:

 

Section 1. That Resolution No. 000496, As Amended, is amended in the following ways:

 


(A)              The Commission shall submit a report and recommendations to the Mayor and Council no later than July 1, 2001.

 

(B)              The Commission shall consist of at least 12 members.

 

(C)              The Commission is authorized to study whether the current Charter should be amended in one or more ways, or whether the City should offer to the voters a new Charter. The Commission may consider, if it chooses, how amendments to the current Charter or a new Charter could be presented to the voters. This action is not to be understood as the expression by the Council of a preference for any particular course of action, or whether any course of action is even appropriate.
