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.

Knowing how and when to administer cardiopulmonary resuscitation or CPR could mean the difference between life and death during an emergency. In an effort to train Lee’s Summit residents in this life-saving procedure, the Lee’s Summit Health Education Advisory Board (HEAB) is offering a free, Hands-Only™ CPR training being held on Sat., Feb. 18, at the Gamber Community Center, 4 SE Independence Ave., Lee’s Summit. 


Participants can choose from three, 45-minute sessions beginning at 9 a.m., 10 a.m., and 11 a.m. 


Individuals experienced in teaching CPR will conduct the training sessions that will include a brief video and mannequins to practice chest compressions. Registration is preferred and is available online for Hands-Only™ CPR training at www.LSparks.net or by calling (816) 969-1500. Space is limited; so sign up today. However, walk-ins will be permitted, if space is available. The day of the event all participants will receive a certificate and while supplies last a free T-shirt.


The Hands-Only™ CPR training was made possible due to Lee’s Summit HEAB’s partnership with the Lee’s Summit Medical Center, Saint Luke’s East – Lee’s Summit, Truman Medical Center – Lakewood, John Knox Village, the Lee’s Summit R-7 School District, the Lee’s Summit Fire Department, Lee’s Summit Parks and Recreation, and the City of Lee’s Summit; as well as the generous financial support of Baptist –Trinity Lutheran Legacy Foundation. 


Please join us on Sat., Feb. 18 to learn this lifesaving technique which might one day save the life of someone you know and love.
