The Kansas City Council approved a compromise Thursday to end a battle over liquor consents in the Crossroads and historic West Bottoms, avoiding the need for a November referendum question.
The council approved a new ordinance affecting just those two neighborhoods. It addresses concerns raised by petitioners who sought a November referendum election to repeal an earlier ordinance.
This new approach gives condo owners a greater voice, gives major property owners somewhat more influence and raises the bar on consents needed for 3 a.m. liquor licenses.
