COMMITTEE SUBSTITUTE FOR RESOLUTION NO. 130321, AS AMENDED

 

Directing the City Manager to provide mandatory training for all individuals appointed to the Neighborhood Tourist Development Fund Committee; requesting the Neighborhood Tourist Development Fund Committee to develop an avenue for feedback to applicants that failed to get their requested level of funding from the Neighborhood Tourist Development Fund; requesting the development of five-year plans; and capping monies placed in reserve funds at 10% of a year’s NTDF total funds.

 

WHEREAS, the Neighborhood Tourism Development Fund (“NTDF”) was established by state statute in 1989; and

 

WHEREAS, the voters of Kansas City, Missouri closed a loophole that will increase funding for the NTDF, and

 

WHEREAS, even with the increase in funding there is an inadequate level of support for the many worthwhile community events occurring in our city, and

 

WHEREAS, development of five-year plans to identify large-scale events that may require more than $100,000.00 in NTDF funds can assist the City in planning for such large-scale events, while concurrently funding equally important “small-scale” local events; and

 

WHEREAS, creation of a “reserve fund” capped at 10% of total funds per year will assist the City in planning for the funding of large-scale events and other contingencies; NOW, THEREFORE,

BE IT RESOLVED BY THE COUNCIL OF KANSAS CITY:

Section 1. That the City Manager is hereby directed to provide mandatory training for all individuals appointed to the Neighborhood Tourist Development Fund Committee that will provide an understanding of the contracting process, ethical considerations, the state law governing the fund, and the role and responsibility of members in regards to funding recommendations.

Section 2. That the Neighborhood Tourist Development Fund Committee is requested to develop an avenue for feedback to applicants that failed to get their requested level of funding from the NTDF.

Section 3. That the Neighborhood Tourist Development Fund Committee is hereby requested to create five-year plans to identify large-scale events that may require more than $100,000.00 in NTDF funds to assist in planning for such large-scale events, while concurrently funding equally important “small-scale” local events.

Section 4. That any monies placed in a reserve fund created to fund large-scale events and other contingencies shall never exceed 10% of total NTDF funds for any given year.
