COMMITTEE SUBSTITUTE FOR RESOLUTION NO. 090756

 

Amending the Standing Rules to add a Standing Rule 22-C, Appointments to boards and commissions, to require that appointments requiring Council approval be made by ordinance.

 

WHEREAS, there are certain Mayoral appointments to boards or commissions that require the City Councils approval; and

 

WHEREAS, throughout their terms of service, the persons appointed to such boards and commissions will make decisions having significant impact on matters important to the Citys viability and development, such as land use, land development, economic development and job creation; and

 

WHEREAS, because of the importance to the City of the decisions these persons will be asked to make during their service on such board or commission, the Council recognizes the necessity of having sufficient information and time to make informed decisions as to such appointments; and

 

WHEREAS, the Councils standing committees are the Councils established means of gathering such information on matters to be considered by the full Council and the referral to a standing committee provides the time to gather and consider such information; and

 

WHEREAS, making appointments by ordinance, rather than resolution, will ensure adequate consideration of these appointments; NOW, THEREFORE,

BE IT RESOLVED BY THE COUNCIL OF KANSAS CITY:

 

That the Standing Rules of the council be amended to add a new rule, to read as follows:

 

Rule 22-C. Appointments to boards and commissions.

 

All appointments to boards and commissions requiring Council approval shall be made by ordinance.
