Dan Brandcolis and Tammy Queen, Finance, testified on this ordinance. Liberty Memorial Association ("LMA") has identified sections of the WWI Museum and Memorial roofing structure, specifically the waterproofing membrane, that requires repair or replacement. LMA is partnering with STRATA Architecture for support and recommendations. The roof repairs or replacement are estimated to cost $4,000,000.00. Capital repairs are the obligation of the City for the WWI Museum and Memorial according to the terms of the Liberty Memorial Agreement with the City, acting through its Board of Parks and Recreation Commissioners. LMA, a key partner to Kansas City Parks and Recreation, has secured a private donation of $2,000,000.00 for the improvements. This ordinance, if passed, authorizes the City match of $2,000,000.00 in financing to be repaid over a successive three year period from the Capital Improvement Sales Tax Fund (50%) and the Parks Sales Tax (50%). The Board of Parks and Recreation Commissioners approved Resolution No. 31359 on November 19, 2019, authorizing a cooperative funding agreement with LMA for this project.

Jaron Baldeares, office of Management and Budget, testified on this ordinance. The City's Property insurance premiums are included in every annual budget that is adopted by City Council. Historically, payment of the property insurance premiums have been paid out quarterly over the course of a fiscal year, with a new property insurance agreement being implemented in December of every year. This allowed a close estimation of what roughly half of the old premium amount and the new premium amount to be allocated in every annual Budget. This meant that collection of revenues, through charges to departments, would cover the costs of the payment of premiums over the course of the fiscal year. However the new agreement has been paid out in a lump sum. This means that revenues collected in the current fiscal year are not sufficient to cover a full 12mo coverage amount for the upcoming fiscal year, and 6mo of the current fiscal year.
