I don't even want to know their reasons for voting no. I mean I do but I don't.

I’ve been noticing what seems to be crews taking core samples on Main in Midtown. Related to planning for streetcar or some other non related project?
We are doing environmental right now.

Three committee members were absent for the vote: Fowler, Shields, and Lucas.
The streetcar financing ordinance is on this afternoon's council agenda: http://cityclerk.kcmo.org/liveweb/Meeti ... wIfd9ibUHj
Full council passed. Hall and Loar voted no. Lucas not present. All others voted yes.
He was not present at the Airport and Streetcar votes.

Being physically present to vote is so dumb in government.

I agree, but I can't imagine they'll voluntarily change it so that they are forced to have a record that can be used against them.

I wouldn't want someone to get voted onto the council and then effectively move away. Ex, they keep a home in Virginia and have a token address in KC.

I can see allowing proxy voting where your proxy must show up and you must not have been out of town longer than X number of weeks
