(Adopted October 5, 1971).

(1976) Held, Kansas City, being a charter city, "has authority to grant city funds to school districts, or portions of school districts, lying within its corporate limits." Enright v. Kansas City (Mo. Banc), 536 S.W.2d 17.

(2000) Proposed city charter amendments, requiring two-thirds voter approval on every tax increment financing measure and abrogating city power of eminent domain incident to any tax increment financing redevelopment plan or project, violated state statutes and thus were unconstitutional. State ex rel. Hazelwood Yellow Ribbon Committee v. Klos, 35 S.W.3d 457 (Mo.App.E.D.).
