FINANCE AND GOVERNANCE COMMITTEE recommends "DO PASS"
Chris Hernandez, Director of Communications, testified that the City Communications Office, a division of the City Manager's Office, created community engagement opportunities designed to build a stronger connection between City government and our residents. The engagement was tied to the world champion success of the Kansas City Royals. Last year we sold "Royals Ave" replica street signs, and this year we sold "Home Sweet Home" banners similar to those flying on Grand Boulevard during the victory celebration. A portion of the proceeds from the sales benefit KC youth and our fountains. The 2014 charity partner was the KCMO chapter of RBI, Reviving Baseball in Inner Cities, and in 2015 the charity partner is The City of Fountains Foundation. The portion of the proceeds retained by City Communications will fund future community engagement and communications activities.
