The question on the ballot:
|For the purpose of reimbursing the City for expenses related to the enforcement of nuisance and property maintenance ordinances, shall the City of Kansas City, Missouri, be authorized to charge a $75.00 re-inspection fee (for each re-inspection), that may be adjusted annually by the Consumer Price Index, to a violator who fails to correct the nuisance or property maintenance violations within the time frame provided in the written notice, to be used exclusively to provide funding that will supplement current funding for enforcement of nuisance and property maintenance ordinances so funding shall not be reduced below the amounts in the Fiscal Year 2010 – 11 Budget, unless overall percentage reductions are imposed on all other General Fund supported City departments?|
Local groups are in favor of the tire permit measure, they see it as a good way to regulate tire disposal as well as ensuring cleanup of old tires in the city. But others believe that unless state rules are tightened, the local controls will not fully address the tire waste issue. City officials though feel that the fee on the local level will help in reducing waste and dumping throughout the city.
