Kansas City, MO – Preparing for a July 4th week off, the Kansas City City Council turned out a prolific load of legislation Thursday. Council members also went head to head with Mayor Mark Funkhouser over funding for the Sports Complex.

The Missouri Senate has put together an alternate version of the auto incentives bill, after the version passed by the House was blocked by the Senate committee.

Hundreds turned out Thursday to bid on furniture, fixtures and other finds from the White Haven Motor Lodge. The longtime fixture on Metcalf Avenue closed last month. The auction continues Friday.
