RESOLUTION NO. 961612

 

Recognizing the collaborative efforts that went into the Manheim Park Cleanup Project.

 

WHEREAS, on November 20, 1996, the Kansas City Crime Commission sponsored a special clean up project in the Manheim Park neighborhood and adjacent neighborhood areas. The project was supported by the Kansas City Crime Commission Metropolitan Community Service Program, the Kansas City Police Department and Missouri State Probation and Parole; and

 

WHEREAS, the sponsoring of these special clean up projects by the Kansas City Crime Commission provides a very valuable service to the Kansas City community in that the service is free to the neighborhoods, that those individuals actually participating in the activity are restoring something to the City, and importantly to their own neighborhood, that was taken away in the course of their acts of misconduct, and that the beautification of the City is improved for all to see; and

 

WHEREAS, those participating in the actual clean up included approximately 86 clients from the Kansas City, Missouri Municipal Court, the Jackson County Drug Court and the Missouri State Probation and Parole who were sentenced to complete community service as a condition of their probation. These individuals either lived in the Manheim Park area or in areas immediately adjacent to that neighborhood. As such, they were actually assisting in cleaning up their own neighborhood; NOW, THEREFORE,

 

BE IT RESOLVED BY THE COUNCIL OF KANSAS CITY:

 

That the Mayor and Council hereby commend the Kansas City Crime Commission, the Kansas City Police Department, Missouri State Probation and Parole, and all those that participated in the Manheim Park Cleanup Project; and

 

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, that this Resolution be spread upon the Minutes of the Council in testimony thereof and that a copy hereof be presented to the Kansas City Crime Commission, the Kansas City Police Department, Missouri State Probation and Parole, and the Manheim Park Neighborhood Association in appreciation of the Mayor, Council for the pride they generate and the example they provide for the citizens of Kansas City.
