Bob Langenkamp, City Manager's Office, explained that the ordinance and resolution before the committee deals with business development within the city limits of Kansas City, Mo. The ordinance is asking for a waiver of the minimum amount under Chapter 100 bonds. Mike Kerchoff, Economic Development Corporation, stated that the State of Missouri has agreed to $12 million dollars in incentives for two companies expecting to relocate their operations to Kansas City, Mo. Davd Franzee of Stinson, Morrison Hecker, stated that the company plans to move its headquarters into an existing building and the amount of funds needed would be used to upgrade the building. The infrastructure is already in place. The taxing jurisdictions will not be impacted by the incentives. Earnings tax and property tax would be paid by the company. Councilman Sharp asked that the school district be contacted about the taxes. Bob Langenkamp explained that part of the jurisdiction process involved communicating with the local school districts. The companies anticipate bringing approximately 380 jobs to the area with an average salary of $90,000 per employee. The Mayor and staff members were given credit for making this project happen and bringing these companies to Kansas City, Mo.
