TRANSPORTATION & INFRASTRUCTURE COMMITTEE recommends "ADVANCE AND DO PASS AS A COMMITTEE SUBSTITUTE, DEBATE"
Ralph Davis, Public Works, provided the staff report for this ordinance. Mr. Davis advised that this ordinance allows the City to move forward with financing of 2 new streetcars. There is a need to add more cars to the fleet as a result of the exceeding capacity of the current cars. It was estimated that daily capacity would be 2700 that has doubled. The streetcars run 7 days a week with 3 of the current 4 cars in operation. The 4th fourth car should be used as a spare car but it is being rotated in and out as needed for maintenance so all cars are in use because of ridership. With the purchase of the 2 additional cars this would make a car a ready use spare car. They are moving now to obtain the new cars because it takes about 24 month to add cars to the fleet. Tammy Queen, Finance, advised that the city is part of a 3 party agreement between Kansas City Downtown Streetcar Transportation Development District (TDD) and the Streetcar authority which governs the operation and capital maintenance. At times there are certain issues that come up that must be handled through a letter agreement and the City Manager has the authority to sign those agreements on behalf of the City without further Council approval. However, approval from the Council is needed to approve and appropriate funds when the 3 parties have agreed to finance something new such as these streetcars. These streetcars will be funded by the streetcar fund.

TRANSPORTATION & INFRASTRUCTURE COMMITTEE recommends "HOLD ON AGENDA (7/13/2017)"
Holly Dodge, Law Department, provided the staff report on this ordinance. This ordinance changes our current statute to mirror the State House Bill 130 that will go into effect August 28, 2017. This opens the market and takes out any regulations that the city currently utilizes but does it earlier than that State law. The city will still have the ability to audit the Transportation Network Company Code (TNC). Terry O’Toole, Kansas City Transportation Group, stated that he is opposed to the passage of this ordinance as there were no industry meetings held to discuss this matter. He asked that this be held a week to allow conversations to take place with Regulated Industries to better understand the changes and what changes needs to be made. Councilman Fowler and Councilman Wagner, expressed concern that voting for this ordinance moves prematurely. There was public testimony on behalf of and in opposition this ordinance.
