Friday Greetings,

Weather forecasters are calling for accumulations of up to 6” of snow beginning this evening and continuing throughout the weekend. On Thursday, Municipal Services crews placed mobile Emergency Snow Route/No Parking signs on both sides of Armour Road between Fayette and Linn Streets.  During a declared snow emergency, vehicles are prohibited from parking on Armour Road between Fayette and Linn Streets.  All parked vehicles must be moved from Armour Road between Fayette and Linn Streets by 5 p.m. on Friday, January 10.  Parking may resume once the snow emergency has been deactivated.  The City will announce the activation and deactivation of the emergency snow route on its website, Textcaster and social media channels. 

Chief Steve Beamer is retiring with over 41 years of service to the City of North Kansas City and our department.  Chief Beamer has served with honor and distinction during his distinguished career. Chief Beamer has held positions of a police officer, detective, Sergeant, Captain, Major, and Chief of Police since 2013.  His knowledge and leadership will be missed.  Good luck Chief as you transition to your next chapter in life!

Officer Steve Sammon graduated from the Kansas City Regional Police Academy and was sworn in as a Police Officer on Thursday.  Officer Sammon will begin a twelve-week field training program to complete his training.
