Will Kansas City Taxes Save The East Side???
Here's a bit more insight on the recent effort to fund the East side by way of tax increase. Take a look:
Kansas City Biz Journal: KC incentive reform fails to stop government by petition
"Petitioners affiliated with the Urban Summit and other African-American community groups turned in the signatures of 1,900 residents who support a 30-year, one-eighth-cent sales tax increase to support East Side development. If 1,708 of those signatures are determined to be valid, the City Council will consider petitioners’ request to have the sales tax placed on the ballot in Kansas City in April.
The ballot proposal would use the roughly $8 million raised from the sales tax increase each year to support development in an area bounded by Ninth Street to the north, Gregory Boulevard to the south, Indiana Avenue to the east and the Paseo to the west."
