City Auditor’s Office initiates audit to evaluate on-street parking enforcement
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: April 7, 2020
CONTACT: Douglas Jones, City Auditor, (816) 513-3300
The City Auditor’s Office is conducting an audit to review on-street parking enforcement in downtown Kansas City, Missouri. On-street parking is part of the city’s transportation infrastructure and is designed to offer convenient parking for short-term uses such as eating at a restaurant; conducting a transaction at a store, bank, or government office; or making a delivery.
The redevelopment of the city’s downtown area has increased demand for parking. In 2018, the city and the Kansas City, Missouri Police Department entered into a Memorandum of Understanding to increase the level of parking control activities in the downtown area.
The objective of this audit is to determine what actions could improve on-street parking enforcement in downtown Kansas City.
