RESOLUTION NO. 970410

 

Expressing the intent of the Council to adopt a policy to discourage threatening and intimidating behavior in grant applications.

 

WHEREAS, the City acts as a grant manager in disbursement of certain federal and state funds; and

 

WHEREAS, in its role as an administrator, the City sets guidelines for selection and approval of grant applications; and

 

WHEREAS, consistent with the recommendations set forth in the Red Flag Commission and extending to address issues concerning requests by the public, the City desires to establish a policy reflective of the integrity of grant applications; NOW, THEREFORE,

 

BE IT RESOLVED BY THE COUNCIL OF KANSAS CITY:

 

That the Council hereby establishes the following policy to be applied to all applications for grants unless otherwise clearly prohibited by law. That policy shall provide that in the event that any person or any organization whose member attempt to threaten or intimidate City employees for the purpose of securing a grant shall be deemed ineligible for receipt of the grant for that year and for the next fiscal year. In order to determine whether an issue exists as to whether any behavior is threatening or intimidating, the matter shall be referred to the Grant Application Review Board constituted for that particular grant or to the department head responsible for the administration of the grant if no board exists. If the person making the threat or intimidating the City employee is a member of any City board or commission, such person shall be subject to removal from such board or commission for cause.
