Authorizing Amendment No. 2 to the Golf Course lease at Richards-Gebaur Memorial Airport with the City of Belton, Missouri, revising BeltonĀ“s capital improvement budget.


AVIATION COMMITTEE recommends "DO PASS"
Kathy Whalen, Aviation Department, testified on behalf of this ordinance. This ordinance would authorize a second (2nd) amendment to a lease agreement with the City of Belton, Missouri. This lease is for property (Belton Golf Course) on which the City of Belton operates for the City of Kansas City, Missouri. The lease was to be in effect from 1985 to 2023. In 1998 the lease was amended to include provisions for renovation of the golf course. During that time, because of a disagreement between both cities, a cap was set on the amount for capital improvements and if the city of Kansas City needed to take back any of the property, the city would reimburse them for any unadvertised dept for any project that was affected during that time. They agreed upon an amount for the capitalized fund was set at $2.8 million. This agreement allows for the City of Belton to combine some of the cost from several items into one certain item (the $2.8 million will not change).
