5. A meeting is scheduled for 12/16. Merchant leaders, LEAD Program staff and WCCDA will attend this meeting and continue to ask questions to build accountability and transparency. Which officers will work overtime, who, what time and how much will it cost us?
6. KC Department of Local Services is in the process of hiring an Economic Recovery Specialist. Only a portion of this position will focus on relationships and work with property owners. The WCCDA continues to discuss the importance of this position and the anti-displacement work focus. The importance of working with property owners on development and tenancy continues to be important. WCCDA will also focus on communication with the county's Permitting Department. $100,000 in general fund dollars went to support this county position. These general fund dollars will allow the county to focus on fire-related recovery efforts for White Center businesses specifically rather than the property owner-focused work
