Amending Chapter 2, Administrative Code, Code of Ordinances, by repealing Section 2-931, Neighborhood tourist development fund committee, and Section 2-937, Additional program requirements and restrictions, and enacting in lieu thereof two new sections of like number and subject matter.

 

BE IT ORDAINED BY THE COUNCIL OF KANSAS CITY:

 

Section 1. That Chapter 2, Administrative Code, Code of Ordinances, is hereby amended by repealing Sections 2-931 and 2-937, and enacting two new sections to read as follows:

 

Sec. 2-931. Neighborhood tourist development fund committee.

 

The council establishes the following plan for the administration of the neighborhood tourist development fund:

 

(1) A neighborhood tourist development fund committee of 15 members is hereby established, consisting of:

 

a. Two persons from each council district, each to be appointed by his or her

respective council representative;

 

b. Two representatives of the convention and tourism industry, one to be

affiliated with a major area tourist attraction and one to be affiliated with the

hotel industry, both to be appointed by the mayor; and

 

c. One representative from the community at-large, to be appointed by the

mayor.

 

(2) All members must be residents of Kansas City. Six councilmanic district representatives will serve one-year terms. The remaining six councilmanic

representatives will serve two-year terms. The city-wide representatives will serve a

three-year term. All terms will begin on April 1. The members of the committee will

elect a chairperson from their membership. The purpose of the committee will be to

review proposals and make recommendations to the council on the disbursement of

the funds.

 

a. The committee will meet as often as necessary to review proposals for

funding.

 

b. Recommendations on the disbursement of funds will be made quarterly during

the fiscal year. The first quarterly disbursement process will be included with

the manager's budget package.

 

c. The neighborhood tourist development fund of the convention and tourism tax

will be divided into seven shares, with 40 percent of said monies to be

appropriated to the city-wide account and the remaining 60 percent to be

divided equally among the six councilmanic district accounts.

 

Sec. 2-937. Additional program requirements and restrictions.

 

The following additional requirements for funding are established:

 

(1) Every corporation receiving neighborhood tourist development fund monies must maintain its registered office within the city limits.

 

(2) The schedule of ineligible and eligible expenses found in section 2-939(b) must be followed.

 

(3) Applications for each proposal are limited to a total of (a) two districts or (b) one district and the city-wide account. This limitation does not prohibit other districts

from voluntarily contributing funds on their own initiative to any project.

 

(4) All neighborhood tourist development fund contracts must be executed within 120 days from the effective date of the ordinance authorizing the contract unless waived

by the City Manager or the City Manager's designee. Failure of the contractor to

comply with this provision will result in the reversion of the funds allocated for the

project to the account from which funds originated.

 

(5) After each quarterly recommendation by the NTDF committee but prior to the expenditure of any funds, the staff will hold a meeting with all grant recipients to explain the process and to distribut e disbursement f iles for each project. The staff will assist organizations receiving NTDF funding in the preparation of required disbursement documents. Distribution of funds will be contingent upon the prompt return of the disbursement file to the city and the contractor's compliance with the requirements of section 2-936.
