Section 1. That Chapter 2, Code of Ordinances of the City of Kansas City, Missouri, is hereby amended by repealing Section 2-1464, Additional costs, and enacting in lieu thereof a new section of like number and subject matter, to read as follows:

Sec. 2-1464. Additional costs.

 

(a) Costs for use in training of law enforcement officers. In addition to any cost which may be assessed by the municipal division pursuant to statute, ordinance or court rule, in every proceeding filed in the municipal division, for violation of an ordinance, a surcharge of $2. 00 shall be assessed as costs. No such surcharge shall be collected in any proceeding when the proceeding or defendant has been dismissed by the court, when costs are to be paid by the state, county or municipality, or in cases where the defendant is found by the court to be indigent and unable to pay the surcharge. Such surcharge shall be collected by the court administrator and transmitted monthly to the city treasurer. Such surcharge shall also be assessed in cases in which pleas of guilty are processed in the traffic violations bureau or general violations bureau. Such funds collected under this subsection shall be used by the city only to pay for the training of peace officers and law enforcement officers as provided by 590.140, RSMo.

(b) Peace officer standards and training commission fund. Pursuant to 590.140, RSMo, an additional surcharge in the amount of $1.00 shall be assessed to be paid to the state treasury to the credit of the peace officer standards and training commission fund. No such surcharge shall be collected in any proceeding in which the proceeding or defendant has been dismissed by the court, when costs are to be paid by the state, county or municipality, or in cases where the defendant is found by the court to be indigent and unable to pay the surcharge. This surcharge shall be collected by the court administrator and transmitted monthly to the city treasurer.

(c) Costs for use in funding of shelters for battered persons. In addition to all other court costs for municipal ordinance violations, a surcharge of $2.00 shall be assessed and collected for each case filed in the municipal division unless the proceeding or defendant has been dismissed by the court, when costs are to be paid by the state, county or municipality, or in cases where the defendant is found by the court to be indigent and unable to pay the surcharge. The surcharge shall be collected by the court administrator, transmitted monthly to the city treasurer, and used only for the purpose of providing operating expenses for shelters for battered persons as defined in RSMo 455.200--455.230.

 

(d) Costs for use in a court information and records management system. For each municipal


ordinance violation case, except nonmoving traffic violations filed before a municipal judge or processed in a traffic violations bureau or a general violations bureau, wherein the defendant pleads guilty or is found guilty, the court shall assess a surcharge in the amount of $5.00 against the defendant, except in those cases where the defendant is found by the judge to be indigent and unable to pay costs. The surcharge shall be collected by the court administrator, transmitted monthly to the city treasury, and used only for the procurement, installation, maintenance, consulting services, and upkeep of a court information and records management system.
