Business and government leaders from Missouri and Kansas are aligned to push for winning the 2016 Republican National Convention for Kansas City.
There will be a battle of bids for the GOP Nominating Convention and the Convention and Visitors Bureau is comparing Kansas City with other cities that have expressed interest, including Phoenix, New Orleans, Las Vegas and Chicago.
The local task force includes the Chairman of the Johnson County, Kan. Commission and the Mayor of Unified Government in Wyandotte County/Kansas City, Kan.
A first look at the proposed budget for Johnson County shows no property tax increase. Ameristar Casino is looking to raise the sales tax on its customers and use the money for improvements. That and more news from KCUR.
A year ago this month, Johnson County, Kan. officials broke ground on an environmentally friendly $11.5 million public works complex in west Olathe. The new buildings were dedicated on Wednesday at a ceremonial ribbon cutting.
