TKC BREAKING AND EXCLUSIVE NEWS!!! KANSAS CITY EMERGENCY ORDINANCE DEMANDS VOTES FOR MORE PIAC CASH!!!
Behind the scenes, on the sneak and in the aftermath of holiday season malaise . . . City Hall is looking to requisition more loot from Kansas City taxpayers by way of a vote on Public Improvements Advisory Committee (PIAC) funding.
Never mind that a lot of these "needs" should already have enough funding via the GO BOND vote earlier this year . . . And let's also not forget how easy it has been for council-members to loot, commandeer and redirect PIAC funds . . .
Here's the word from a KC Insider . . .
"They have until the end of January to put this on the ballot. They're increasing the length from 10 to 20 years. Doing this right after a holiday . . ."
Legislative (emergency) proof recently introduced without a sponsor names . . .
#170919 - Amending Chapter 68, Code of Ordinances, entitled “Taxation”, by enacting a new Section 68-450, to extend for 20 years the City’s current 1% sales tax used for capital improvements and to codify dedication of the available annual sales tax receipts with 35% for neighborhood conservation, maintenance and improvements divided equally among Council districts and 65% for capital improvements with at least 25% for street resurfacing, repair, and the construction of complete street facilities; reaffirming the role of the Public Improvements Advisory Committee; providing for submission of this ordinance to the qualified voters of the City for their approval at an election called for Tuesday, April 3, 2018; authorizing and directing the City Clerk to notify the responsible election authorities of this election; authorizing and directing the City Clerk to notify the Missouri Director of Revenue if the proposal is approved by the voters; and recognizing this ordinance as having an accelerated effective date.
