Friday Greetings,

In response to the global Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis, the City Council voted to extend the NKC mask order until 12:01 a.m. on Saturday, November 20, 2021. The Order requires individuals, regardless of vaccination status, to wear a mask indoors in areas of public accommodation. These spaces include, but are not limited to, grocery and retail stores, special events, and public transit, but do not include private dwellings or private transportation vehicles.  For more information visit www.nkc.org/coronavirus. 

The City Council discussed draft Redistricting Ward Maps at Tuesday’s City Council Work Session.  The Council modified several maps which will be shared with the community to provide additional feedback early next week.  To watch the Work Session, please follow this link:  https://youtu.be/kLIV4J3BvlM 

This week the NKC Fire Department held the Apparatus Engineer Test. Five individuals tested for the promotion and results will be presented next week. The test consists of a cone course and street driving, setting up the Ariel (ladder truck) with stabilizers, calculating the correct pump pressure for different scenarios, a written exam, and a panel oral interview.

North Kansas City Parks & Recreation is hosting the Ghouls & Goblins Costume Contest in conjunction with the Spooky Snake Saturday Stationary Parade! Contest will be held Saturday, October 23 from 10-11 a.m. at the Festival Shelter in Macken Park for ages 4-13. For more information and contest rules go to www.nkcparksandrec.org/contestinfo.
