Friday Greetings,

In response to the recommendations made by the Clay County Health Center, Mayor Stielow has amended the North Kansas City ‘Stay at Home’ Order to 11:59 p.m. on Sunday, May 3, 2020.  This amendment mirrors the amendment Clay County Public Health Center made to their Order on Wednesday.

The Clay County Public Health Center is developing a plan for the FIRST PHASE of community recovery and reopening.  It is being developed with the assistance of local leadership and will generally align with guidance from Governor Parson’s “Show Me Strong” Recovery Plan for the State of Missouri. The Clay County Health Center will release its plan by the middle of next week. These plans will include detailed guidance for safely and gradually allowing businesses to reopen, events to resume and assist individuals in the reopening of our communities. 

Please stay tuned to the health center’s website, www.clayhealth.com, and social media channels for updates and additional information.  For more information, please contact the Clay County Public Health Center.

Councilmembers Clevenger, DeLong, and Smith have called for a Special Meeting of the North Kansas City Council, pursuant to Municipal Code 2.04.030, on Tuesday, April 28, 2020 at 6 p.m.  The Special Meeting will focus on the North Kansas City Stay-at-Home Order date change from May 15, 2020, to May 3, 2020 at 11:59 p.m.

Due to the recommendations of the Centers for Disease Control and the Stay at Home Order, this Special Meeting will be held virtually, with City Council members and City staff joining the meeting on an online platform.  The public will not be able to participate in the meeting as it is being held, but the public may view the meeting live on the City’s Cable Channel or YouTube channel, which can be found on the City’s website at www.nkc.org/live.  

Dru Bruns will start on Friday, May 1 as a Police Officer. He come to us from the Platte County Sheriffs Department.  Welcome Aboard!

The Police Department took delivery on a new Ford F150 Police Responder patrol vehicle this week.  The truck also begins the fleet transition from our primarily black patrol cars to a charcoal grey color.  Once completely outfitted, the truck will be primarily assigned to the field supervisor for patrol operations.  The truck contains Ford's 3.5L EcoBoost V6 engine which provides plenty of power while maximizing fuel economy.  The truck platform was requested by the field supervisors due to the increasing amount of equipment and supplies that need to be available quickly.

The Mid-America Regional Council is coordinating the regional COVID-19 response through a Multiagency Coordination (MAC) Group and System.  Emergency Manager/Fire Chief Dave Hargis is serving as the Emergency Services Branch Director and Assistant City Administrator Kim Nakahodo is serving as the Section Chief of ESF-15 (Public Information) for the MAC System.
