The Board of Aldermen met September 14th, approving the tax levy for 2020 and authorizing the City Administrator to enter into an agreement to undergo a full codification review.
The Board approved a levy of $1.5994 to fund general municipal government operations, the retirement of general obligation debt, park maintenance, and public health.
The Board also approved a resolution allowing the City Administrator to contract with General Code to conduct a full review of the Municipal Code to identify inconsistencies and errors. City Administrator Ken Murphy explained a full recodification is recommended every 12-15 years and the current code established in 1996 has been updated over the years but in need of a full review.
The Board also approved the first reading of an ordinance requiring food trucks to obtain a business license to sell in Grain Valley, as well as the first reading of an ordinance to provide greater detail pertaining to the sale of merchandise services on park property and who has authority to waive the park ordinance.
