(Sub.)
Calling for submission to the voters of Kansas City, at a special election to be held on August 8, 2006, an advisory question asking whether voters support local control of the Kansas City Police Department; directing the City Clerk to notify the responsible election authorities of the election on or after May 26, 2006, but not later than May 30, 2006 if a binding measure is placed before the voters for this election date; and recognizing this ordinance to be an emergency measure.


BUDGET AND AUDIT COMMITTEE recommends "ADVANCE AND DO PASS AS A COMMITTEE SUBSTITUTE, DEBATE"
Councilman Rowland, explained that he had requested that this question go to the voters not because he didn't have confidence in the Police Department but because Kansas City is one of two cities in the United States that does not govern its own police department. This may have been a necessary move in the past but it may not be the most efficient way of handling things now. He believes the voters should have the opportunity to decide. The ordinance was substituted to allow a change in the language to remove the words "a special election" and to change the date to a known election date which is "August 8th, 2006. There was no public testimony and no staff report. The committee moved to advance as a substitute.
Ayes: 3 - Rowland, Nash, Riley
