The purpose of the Committee is to review the existing dedicated sales taxes for police and fire purposes and determine recommendations for their expiration, continuation or expansion and to report to the Council on or before October 31, 2014. This Committee will automatically disband after presentation of its recommendations to the Council.
The Committee is comprised of eleven residents of the City of Independence who are not current City employees. Each Councilmember names one individual member, and the remaining four members are appointed by a majority vote of the Council. The member appointed by the Mayor is to chair the Committee. Due to the temporary nature of this committee, its members may serve on other committees, boards or commissions.
