COMMITTEE SUBSTITUTE FOR RESOLUTION NO. 031172

 

Adopting the revised mission statement for the Convention and Entertainment Centers Department.

 

WHEREAS, in September 1997, the City Council adopted Resolution No. 971230 which contained a mission statement for the department that was developed by the Mayor's Convention Center Task Force; and

 

WHEREAS, the City Council directed the comprehensive examination of the Convention and Entertainment Centers Department through Resolution adopted in April 2002; and

 

WHEREAS, as part of that examination, the existing mission statement for the Convention and Entertainment Centers Department was reviewed and determined to not accurately reflect the Citys performance expectations regarding the operation of all Convention and Entertainment Department Facilities; and

 

WHEREAS, a revised mission statement was prepared by the Convention and Entertainment Centers Steering Committee; and

 

WHEREAS, this mission statement was discussed with the City Council, included in the RFP that was issued for the management of the American Royal Center, and was the basis for specific policy statements outlining the performance expectations for the American Royal Center and the separate buildings comprising the American Royal Center and for the Convention Center Complex and the separate buildings comprising it; and

 

WHEREAS,  the revised mission statement altered the mission statement adopted in 1997; and

 

WHEREAS, an audit of the Convention and Entertainment Centers noted the inconsistency between the adopted and revised mission statement and recommended that the Council formally adopt the revised mission statement; NOW, THEREFORE,

 

BE IT RESOLVED BY THE COUNCIL OF KANSAS CITY:

 

Section 1. That the City Council adopts the revised mission statement for the Convention and Entertainment Centers Department as follows:

 

The mission of the Convention and Entertainment Centers Department is to maximize the community economic impact and the revenues of the Citys facilities, while making fiscally sound decisions and enhancing the quality of life and entertainment in Kansas City and the metropolitan area. We will constantly strive for customer satisfaction and repeat business by maintaining the highest standards of service and exceeding the expectations of our clients and patrons.
