(a) No less than ninety-five percent of the proceeds derived from the sales tax imposed by Sec. 68-471 of this article and received by the City shall annually be appropriated and paid to the Kansas City Area Transportation Authority (KCATA) for such purposes as are provided in RSMo 92.400—92.421, inclusive. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the amount to be so appropriated and paid shall be determined only after the following deductions from such proceeds shall have been made, and none other:

 

(1) The two percent cost of handling authorized by RSMo 92.418.1.

 

(2) All tax increment financing obligations pursuant to the terms of the Real Property Tax Increment Allocation Redevelopment Act, RSMo 99.800—99.865, inclusive.

(b) Notwithstanding the above, pursuant to Resolution 130778, as amended, the City Manager on an annual basis during budget deliberations shall determine whether KCATA has demonstrated that it has instituted cost reduction measures.

 

(c) If the City Manager determines that KCATA has not demonstrated adequate cost reduction measures, the City Manager's proposed budget may reflect an appropriation of less than the 95% required above together with an explanation in the City Manager's budget letter to Mayor and Council.
