TKC MUST SEE!!! KANSAS CITY AIM4PEACE $1.5-MILLION TARGETED!!!
As KCMO now copes with more than 100 homicides, a pandemic and a budget crisis . . . Cash for anti-crime groups has now come under fire.
Accordingly, TKC readers are keeping an eye on this ongoing discussion . . . A hot take:
"$1.5 million from Aim4Peace to "dispute resolution" from the health levy fund??? I thought KCMO had an ongoing coronavirus issue."
An ordinance introduced by Councilman Ellington: "Reducing an appropriation in the amount of $1,519,466.00 in the Health Levy Fund; appropriating that amount to the evidence based crime prevention program account; and recognizing this ordinance as having an accelerated effective date. ** At Councilman Barnes request, this item will be held until Wednesday, July 22nd 2020.**"
Deets . . .
Section 1. That the sum of $1,519,466.00 is reduced from the following account in the Health Levy Fund:
21-2330-501900 Aim4Peace $1,519,466.00
Section 2. That the sum of $1,519,466.00 is appropriated from the Unappropriated Fund Balance of the Health Levy Fund to the following account in the Health Levy Fund:
21-2330-102140-B Dispute Resolution $1,519,466.00
Accordingly . . .
Aim4Peace hasn't been effective in curbing the local murder count and MILLIONS more to their efforts in the midst a budget crisis is coming under fire not only from both budget hawks and urban leaders.
