TKC BREAKING NEWS!!! CITY HALL RESOLUTION SNUBBING PREZ TRUMP WILL PUSH KANSAS CITY TOWARD ADOPTING ELECTRIC AND HYBRID VEHICLES!!!
In one of many rebukes of Prez Trump policy, Kansas City looks to champion environmental, electric and hybrid initiatives starting with a new resolution this week.
Following the lead of Euro-trash leaders across the globe working to spite Prez Trump skepticism on eco-efforts.
Here's local legislation with an introductory dig at The Commander-In-Chief who rebuked the French-y effort to save the planet and spike gas prices which might or might not have caused frog truck drivers to subsequently riot about the higher cost of living, new Muslim friends, the low carb diet trend and a dearth of cafes where public smoking is still allowed . . .
Back in this cowtown, here's a run down of resolution language that hopes to save the planet . . .
The City “continues to support the principles of the Paris Climate Agreement” and the City “will continue to stand with cities and other public and private sector partners throughout the world to advance action in accordance with the goals outlined in the Paris Climate Agreement”
One of the main points of Resolution #181000:
"That the City Manager shall work with other governmental entities to establish an electric vehicle procurement initiative, and ensure at least fifty percent of the City’s new bus and passenger sedan purchases are all-electric or plug-in-hybrid-electric vehicles for calendar years 2021 to 2026."
Other highlights include . . .
- That the City Manager shall enter into negotiations in the first quarter of 2019 to procure all of its electricity for municipal operations from carbon free sources with KCP&L with a goal of converting to carbon free electricity by December 31, 2020.
- The City Manager is directed to achieve Energy Star certification for 90% of all eligible municipal buildings of 25,000 square feet or more by no later than December 31, 2023.
- That the City Manager shall survey and identify by June 30, 2020, what parcels of City-owned land might be appropriate for community solar projects, and shall develop a plan by June 30, 2020 that allows City employees to procure solar for their own needs from such community solar projects.
