RESOLUTION NO. 030964

 

Supporting Proposition A, to be voted upon by the citizens of Clay County establishing a levy on real property of .05 cents per each one hundred dollars of assessed valuation for the purpose of providing services to persons sixty years of age or older.

 

WHEREAS, the Council recognizes the needs of senior citizens not only in the City of Kansas City, but throughout Clay County, and a recent survey of senior citizens and care givers of senior citizens in Clay County reflected the publics recognition of the need for a Senior Citizens Service Fund; and

 

WHEREAS, in as much as Platte County passed the same levy seven years ago and its citizens have benefitted greatly from expenditures from the levy which assist senior citizens to remain in their homes and be independent, productive members of the community, as opposed to living in care facilities supported by public funds; and

 

WHEREAS, the Clay County Commission has responded to the needs of the senior citizens of Clay County, and their care givers, by proposing a Senior Citizens Service Fund Tax on real property within the County in the amount of .05 cents per each one hundred dollars of assessed valuation; and

 

WHEREAS, the Senior Citizens Service Fund Tax will appear on the ballot for the election on November 4, 2003, as County Proposition A; and

 

WHEREAS, the Mayor and Council desire to express their support for the Clay County Senior Citizens Service Fund Tax by endorsing the passage of Proposition A on November 4, 2003, by the citizens of Kansas City and Clay County; NOW, THEREFORE,

 

BE IT RESOLVED BY THE COUNCIL OF KANSAS CITY:

 

That the Mayor and Council endorse and support the passage of the Clay County Senior Citizens Service Fund Tax, which will appear on the ballot for the election on November 4, 2003 as Proposition A, because it will provide much needed financial assistance for the senior citizens of Kansas City and Clay County.
