RESOLUTION NO. 030948

 

Directing the City Manager to propose a plan to post on the Citys Government Channel and website the identities of individuals having an excessive number of unpaid fines for City ordinance violations.

 

WHEREAS, the Council has enacted ordinances to protect the safety, health and welfare of citizens; and

 

WHEREAS, violations of many of those ordinances are enforced by the judicial imposition of a fine; and

 

WHEREAS, the Council believes there are an excessive number of individuals who have refused or otherwise failed to pay multiple fines imposed on them for violations of the Citys ordinances; and

 

WHEREAS, the Council believes that the refusal or failure of some individuals to pay their fines undermines the integrity of that part of the judicial system entrusted with the enforcement of the Citys ordinances and is patently unfair to those individuals who pay their fines; NOW, THEREFORE,

 

BE IT RESOLVED BY THE COUNCIL OF KANSAS CITY:

 

That the City Manager is hereby directed to propose a plan within forty-five (45) days of adoption of this resolution to post on the Citys Government Channel and website the identities of individuals who have unpaid fines for violations of City ordinances by name and by the total number and amount of the unpaid fines.
