Second Amended Charter

While the Charter as a whole was adopted immediately upon the citizens’ vote, there were two areas where later effective dates were included in the recommendations: 

·      Section 3.13.  Legislative Procedures, subsections (e) and (f), regarding the reading and approval of ordinances, to be effective July 1, 2017; and,

·      Chapter 4. Mayor, to be effective after the April 2018 election for Mayor. 

In the following Charter, changes to these sections are shown in red, with a footnote containing an explanation.  The Charter will be updated again after each of the two effective dates.

On Tues., March 29, the City received the Military Order of the Purple Heart Special Recognition plaque for dedication and support honoring America’s combat wounded veterans from the Patriot Members of the Department of Missouri Military Order of the Purple Heart, USA. Upon receiving this prestigious award, Lee’s Summit is now among 107 cities designated as a “Purple Heart City.”
Mayor Pro Tempore and Councilmember Diane Forte accepted the award, on behalf of the City, which was presented during the ceremony in front of Lee’s Summit City Hall on Tuesday morning (March 29) honoring Vietnam War Veterans by the local chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR).
In recognition of the significance of March 29 in our country’s history, there was a flag raising and a “Welcome Home Vietnam Veterans Day” proclamation read by Mayor Pro Tempore and Councilmember Forte. On March 29,1973, the last United States troops left South Vietnam, ending America’s direct military involvement in the Vietnam War.
Thank you to the men and women who have served and continue to serve in our country’s Armed Forces.
