The Lee’s Summit Economic Development Council has endorsed and supported the City of Lee’s Summit for the issuance of a General Obligation Bond, which will be on the ballot during a special election on August 6th, 2019.

The proposed $19,475,000 bond would allow for new public-safety measures including two new fire stations and associated apparatus to replace fire stations No. 4 and No. 5. Additionally, it would allow for installation of police automobile video systems and police body-worn camera systems. The proposed bond would also be used for renovations and enhancements to improve security, public access, customer service and operational efficiency at the police and courts municipal building. Lastly, it would be used to purchase and install new infrastructure to renovate, improve and upgrade the city’s wireless and fiber optic communications network at City Hall and other city facilities.

“The LSEDC supports the commitment to public safety and progressive development put forth by this proposal,” said President & CEO Rick McDowell.


The LSEDC encourages voters to vote “yes” on this measure on August 6th.
