Board Bill 216 by 22nd Ward Jeffrey Boyd (chairman of committee) would remove the Plat & Petition requirements for licensing of Bathhouses, Bed & Breakfasts, Billiard and Pool Rooms, Dance Halls, Pawn Shops, Photo Studios, and Tattoo Parlors.
Board Bill 217 by 7th Ward Alderman Jack Coatar would also eliminate Plat & Petition, and does more, but was assigned to BOA Housing, Urban Development, Zoning Committee, and has not yet been scheduled for hearing.
Both Board Bills state, “no other City in the State of Missouri requires that a business submit a plat and petition prior to obtaining a business license to operate” as a reason to eliminate the requirement.

There is a vacant seat on the committee from the appointment of 8th Ward Alderman Steve Conway to Assessor. President Reed is a voting member of all committees.
