City Administrator’s Report for 1/3/2014

City Administrator’s Report FROM: Mahesh Sharma, City Administrator

Economic Development
On Monday December 30, 2013, the Economic Development Administrator sent “Termination of Abatement” notification to the Jackson County Assessor’s Office to conclude the Chapter 353 Tax Abatements previously granted to GE Environmental and AHG, Inc. (Center 63 Shopping Center).
The GE Environmental abatement was terminated as a condition of abatement on the property at 8800 East 63rd Street was to maintain a minimum employment threshold on site of no fewer than 165 employees. As GE has relocated to Overland Park, Kansas, this is not feasible, thus voiding the incentive.
The AHG, LLC (Center 63 Shopping Center abatement was terminated as Article III, Section 3.01(c) of the original agreement states “the Owner agrees that it will provide the City a written annual report by July 31st of each year. The annual report shall include, but not be limited to, the following: a listing of tenants, the number of full-time and part-time jobs for each tenant, the length of time each tenant has been occupying its respective space, a listing of any/all vacancies, and the length of time each space has been vacant.”
To date, the City has not received the aforementioned report in 2011, 2012 or 2013.
Additionally, the Board of Aldermen approved the 353 Tax Abatement based on the promise of two new tenants occupying over 30,000 sq. ft. at the extreme south end of the property. While Save-A-Lot Grocery initially occupied half of the space, the remaining space has yet to be occupied and Save-A-Lot closed due to corporate restructuring.
