Kansas City Mayor Says Federal Relief Funds Will Do More Than Solve Budget Woes
According to Mayor Quinton Lucas, the estimated $195 million Kansas City expects from the American Rescue Plan will allow the city "to address a number of issues, including those that relate to housing."
Last week Mayor Lucas announced relaxed COVID-19 guidelines for businesses. Then there was more good news tied to the passage of the latest stimulus bill. Kansas City will receive federal funds. Lucas addressed what that means for a city that is staring at a $70 million budget shortfall.
