 News :: Questions Raised over Downtown Lee's Summit Main Street Funding

Two members of the Lee's Summit City Council voted against a Public Service Agreement between the City and the Downtown Lee's Summit Main Street Organization.

Councilmembers Dave Mosby and Phyllis Edson voted against the ordinance. At issue is the dual funding mechanisms for the nonprofit organization.

“I voted no because this is double taxation. We are subsidizing DLSMS, a non-profit, through tax dollars from both the CID and the hotel tax," Councilmember Edson said. "Non-profits have access to grant funding, sponsorships, donations and money raised through events. It’s not right that we are reaching into the taxpayers pocket twice for this one organization.”

Councilmember Mosby voted against the PSA for similar reasons. "I am concerned about a public/private organization who wants taxpayer subsidy yet cannot or will not provide budget line item verification of how the money has been used," Mr. Mosby said.

 News :: Golfing For Hope

Lullaby of Hope is hosting a golf tournament on Saturday, June 17 at the Adams Pointe Golf Club located at 1601 NE RD Mize Road, Blue Springs, MO, 64014. 

“Lullaby of Hope gives curated gift boxes for women journeying through infertility, pregnancy or infant loss,” Founder and Director Krystalle Wheeler said. “We want to equip women during the waiting and in the midst of grief… Our gift boxes include items such as a devotional book, tea, pearl bracelet and each gift has a handwritten note from one of our team members. Each of us has experienced extreme waiting or loss, so we can come to these women from a place of pure compassion.”

Whitney Warner is one of those women who received a gift.  She recalled the impact the simple curated box had on her during her family’s time of grief.
