  VI Section 19(a).  Power of charter cities, how limited. — Any city which adopts or has adopted a charter for its own government, shall have all powers which the general assembly of the state of Missouri has authority to confer upon any city, provided such powers are consistent with the constitution of this state and are not limited or denied either by the charter so adopted or by statute.  Such a city shall, in addition to its home rule powers, have all powers conferred by law.


(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.).
