You should pay attention to this vote, even if you don't have investment properties in Kansas City, Missouri - if this ordinance passes, we expect many other cities in the metro area and across Missouri to propose similar ordinances.
Kansas City's proposed ordinance is available from the City Clerk - the ballot language appears first, and if you scroll down a little, you can read the text of the ordinance.
The sample ballot is available from the Election Board and calls it Question 1 Residential Rental Inspection Program an Initiative Petition.
Housing for All KC will be sharing more information over the next few weeks. MAREI urges you to Like and Share their Facebook Page and to Follow them on Twitter and Share their Tweets and visit their website so you register for their updates and volunteer in any way you can through donations or your time and of course if you can vote in Kansas City Missouri August 7th, be sure to go to the polls.
