KC Kansan: Sales tax election coming in November?

Tuesday, July 21st, 2009

Kansan:

Since the consolidation of Kansas City, Kan., and Wyandotte County into the Unified Government in 1997, UG leaders have professed the desire to lower property tax rates by diversifying revenue sources.

The current soft economy has forced UG leaders and the Board of Commissioners into finding new and additional revenue sources nearly out of necessity.

Olathe News: Council turns down plan for mixed martial arts fights at Great Mall

Sunday, June 14th, 2009

The Star:

The Elite Fight League of Kansas City will have to look elsewhere for a spot in which to conduct a mixed martial arts event in Kansas.

Olathe City Council members decided Tuesday during a study session to not consider a special-use permit for the company to conduct the event at the Great Mall of the Great Plains.

“I’m not upset, but I am disappointed,” Bob Boggs, one of the local sponsors, said Thursday. “The mayor said we’d get our day in court, but we didn’t even get a chance to speak.”

Boggs, who is founder and chief instructor of the Kenkukan Academy of Self Defense in Olathe, said he would have accepted the council’s decision if it would have voted against the proposal, but members wouldn’t even entertain a vote.

Wayne Godsey on KCMO superintendent search

Monday, April 13th, 2009

KMBC:

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Fourteen months after forcing former school superintendent Anthony Amato out of his job, the Kansas City, Mo., School Board is hiring a national search firm to find a successor.Instead of hiring such a firm immediately, the board tried to save money by using a team of networkers. Candidates were identified, but according to board president Marilyn Simmons, too many dropped out.Imagine that! Why would this school system possibly have trouble finding a new superintendent? Maybe because it is provisonally accredited and facing possible state takeover, or maybe because the board has changed superintendents too many times to count.

Kansas City lending slowing

Tuesday, March 24th, 2009

The Star:

Contrary to popular belief, Kansas City area banks are making loans. They’re even fighting for them.

Several bankers called on Jeff Svilarich, hoping to land the $1.5 million mortgage on Red Oak Landscaping’s new home in the Metcalf 211 industrial park.

“There seemed to be a lot of interest in it, which caught me off guard reading that banks aren’t lending,” said Svilarich, who wrapped up the new loan this month. “That didn’t impact us at all.”

But financial reports do show that many area banks aren’t holding as many loans as they did just a year ago.
