Kansas City, MO –

  • Kansas City voters will have their say on a light rail starter route in November. The city council has unanimously endorsed a plan for alignment and a 3.8-cent sales tax to support it.
  • The council also announced plans for greater cooperation between the police department and airport police and a new downtown parking meter system that will accept credit cards.
  • The Missouri Democratic Party picked the Independence courthouse to kick off its Fall campaign. About 100 persons gathered, mostly party faithful and union members.
  • Democrats don't know whether they'll be campaigning for Chris Koster or Margaret Donnelly for attorney general. Donnelly's campaign manager says she is likely to demand a recount.

  • KCUR serves the Kansas City region with breaking news and award-winning podcasts.
