COMMITTEE SUBSTITUTE FOR ORDINANCE NO. 130173, AS AMENDED

 

Repealing Section 2 of Second Committee Substitute for Ordinance No. 100951; and establishing a committee to review future uses of the transportation sales tax.

WHEREAS, state law limits the use of the transportation sales tax revenue to meeting the City’s contractual obligations to KCATA, and for constructing, reconstructing, maintaining, repairing, policing, signing, lighting and cleaning roads and streets; and

WHEREAS, the demands on this revenue increase as new modes of transportation are explored and developed; and

WHEREAS, the Citizens’ Commission on Municipal Revenue recommended that the City Council approve a revenue policy applicable to all taxes and fees of the City; and

WHEREAS, pursuant to Ordinance No. 121017, approved on December 20, 2012, the City Council adopted a revenue policy which states that, whenever possible, the City shall strive to not dedicate a revenue stream to a specific use or program as dedication or earmarking of revenue streams does not allow the City to respond to changing economic conditions or service expectations and may undermine the City’s general credit; and

WHEREAS, a council committee, balanced with its representation of standing committees, should make recommendations to the full Council on expenditure of these funds for future budgets; NOW, THEREFORE,

BE IT ORDAINED BY THE COUNCIL OF KANSAS CITY:

Section 1. That Section 2 of Second Committee Substitute for Ordinance No. 100951 is hereby repealed.

Section 2. That a committee consisting of five councilmembers, with one councilmember from each of the following committees: Finance Governance & Ethics Committee, Planning Zoning & Economic Development Committee, Neighborhoods & Healthy Communities Committee, Public Safety & Emergency Services Committee, and Transportation & Infrastructure Committee, is established to review Section 68-472.1, Code of Ordinances, and recommend a multi-year financial plan for distribution of the transportation sales tax after reviewing the needs of the bus service and establishing a maximum allocation for development and expansion of a streetcar system. The


committee, appointed by the Mayor, shall finalize its recommendations to the Council by August 1, 2013. The City Manager will provide the appropriate staff to assist the committee.
