Kerry Tyndall, City Manager’s Office, provided a presentation to this ordinance. This ordinance will implement certain obligations in conjunction with ordinance 180057, Three Light Ordinance, related to collections and disbursement of CID revenues and periodic accountant related expenditures. The district revenues from the 1% sales tax will be used in connection with Block 110 Garage and Block 126 Garage, and any other garages within the District constructed in support of existing or future residential buildings. Under this agreement, 50% of District revenues will flow to the existing 1200 Main/South Loop Tax Increment Financing (TIF) Plan to be used for expenses in conjunction with TIF budget and plan. This additional revenue will help to pay off TIF expenses faster. The remaining 50% are to be used by the Developer to operate, maintain, manage and repair Block 110 and Block 126 garages and future garages constructed for residential projects in the District. The City currently owns and operates Block 110 and 126, while Kansas City Live LLC assumes all operational, maintenance and security responsibility for Block 110 and 126 parking garages. The City is only responsible for structural repairs. The estimated annual savings to the City is approximately $1.2 million gross and $520,000 after taxes. Once the TIF plan expires, 50% of the District CID funds will flow to the City instead for capital costs on Block 110 and 126 garages or any other parking garages in conjunction with the KC Live MDA. The remaining 50% of District Funds will flow to the Developer to pay operating maintenance and management for same and future residential garages as if the TIF still existed. The estimated costs for the District services are approximately $5,042,718 over five years. A digital copy of this presentation can be found in the Office of the City Clerk.
