BE IT ORDAINED BY THE COUNCIL OF KANSAS CITY:

Sec. 10-106. - Extended hours permits.

 

(a) Convention trade area 3:00 a.m. closing permit—Eligibility.

 

(1) A convention trade area 3:00 a.m. closing permit, authorized by RSMo § 311.174, authorizes the licensee who holds a section 10-102, 10-103, 10-134 or 10-135 sales-by-drink license to remain open between 1:30 am. and 3:00 a.m., if:

 

a. The applicant's business is located within the convention trade area. Pursuant to RSMo § 311.174, the city's convention trade area is hereby designated as all that territory within the corporate limits of the city; and

 

b. The applicant's business is a convention hotel or motel or the applicant's business is not a convention hotel or motel but is located not more than 1.5 drivable miles as measured from the outside walls of a hotel, defined as any structure, or building, under one management, which contains rooms furnished for the accommodation or lodging of guests, with or without meals being so provided, and kept, used, maintained, advertised or held out to the public as a place where sleeping accommodations are sought for pay or compensation by transient guests or permanent guests, and having more than 100 bedrooms furnished for the accommodation of such guests, and the applicant's annual gross sales at said business for the year immediately preceding the application for a 3:00 a.m. closing permit equals $125,000.00 or more; provided, however, that the director may waive the foregoing gross sales requirement for a business located in the downtown economic entertainment district if requested by the applicant and the request is supported by documentation that the business should produce annual gross sales equal to $125,000.00 or more. If this waiver is granted, the applicant, after 90 days of operation, shall produce proof that the gross sales for said 90 days of operation, when projected on an annualized basis by multiplying the gross sales for the 90 days of operation times four, will be satisfied, and, if not, the 3:00 a.m. closing permit will be canceled by the director without refund. The cancellation shall be appealable to the board in the manner set forth in section 10-62(b) of this chapter. Any convention hotel or motel or business that has a current convention trade area 3:00 a.m. closing permit that does not meet the requirement of having annual gross sales equal to or greater than $125,000.00 at the time their 3:00 a.m. permit is up for renewal after the ordinance from which this section derives has passed will have one year thereafter to fulfill the $125,000.00 annual gross sales requirement.

 

c. A convention hotel or motel that has a current convention trade area 3:00 a.m. closing permit but has fewer than 100 transient guestrooms or a business that has a current convention trade area 3:00 a.m. closing permit which is located more than 1.5 drivable miles from a convention hotel or motel will be allowed to maintain its convention trade area 3:00 a.m. closing permit as long as all other requirements of this chapter have been met.
