Kansas City’s health levy has long funded ambulance services and other care for residents without insurance or a means to pay. A portion of that levy is temporary, and it expires next year.
While much has changed since the levy was first introduced, city leaders and proponents of the tax are pushing to renew that temporary portion for nine more years. The full council is slated to take up the proposed renewal later today, and doing so could pave the way for a popular vote on the tax this spring.
Kansas City, MO – Nine blocks of Kansas City Main Street leading into Westport from the north are about to get a pedestrian-friendly makeover. The city public works department late last week took a look at the 90 percent of the plan that's been finished.
From 34th to 43rd and then spreading out along the southern boundary in the Art Institute District, Main will be altered with added street lighting, planters and landscape architecture.
