 There may be general discussion of current Aviation issues. Mark VanLoh talked about fees collected by the ground transportation agency that had been contracted by the City to run the shuttle bus operations at KCI. There has been a delay in completing the facility but the agency continues to collect money for services provided to customers at KCI. Therefore the agency is asking the City to allow them to turn monies collected by them over to the City until the first of the year and once the facility is open for operation the company will submit invoices to the City for reimbursement of money spent. Several council members expressed their concerns about the legality of the proposal. Assistant City Attorney Dorothy Campbell stated that members of the Law Department had consulted the IRS and tax attorneys about the legality of the proposal and were satisfied that the proposal was indeed legal. Councilwoman Becky Nace suggested having the company retain the money collected, have the City pay the taxes on that money and the funds would be available when needed without going through so many steps for such a short period of time. This item would be discussed during the legislative session on Thursday. Councilman Skaggs asked that all pertinent information to council members before the meeting on Thursday so that they can be made aware of the issues.
