Missouri State Representative Jeanie Lauer of Blue Springs explains the need for Missouri to join the 49 other states that allow a fee on wireless phones to support the 911 system at the SKCA December meeting. Lauer’s legislation to allow counties to seek voter approval for such fees and to enact a statewide fee on prepaid wireless service passed the Missouri House in 2016 but died in the Senate. Passage of such legislation is a top legislative priority for the SKCA.
“This part of the metropolitan area is going to achieve sustained growth for the foreseeable future as we see follow up development to the Cerner project,” Joe Reardon, president of the Greater Kansas City Chamber of Commerce, told the South Kansas City Alliance annual meeting Monday, November 14.
Kansas City Councilman Kevin McManus explained the need for the three city bond issues totaling $800 million that will be on the April 4 ballot to the approximately 100 persons attending the February 13 SKCA meeting. Other speakers on the bond issues were (from left) Mayor Sly James and Council members Lee Barnes, Scott Taylor and Alissia Canady.
