Platte County Students participate in National Manufacturing Day

unnamed.jpg


Park Hill and Platte County R-3 students participated in National Manufacturing Day activities. Manufacturing Day is a celebration of modern manufacturing meant to inspire the next generation of manufactures and takes place the first Friday in October. MFG DAY addresses common misperceptions about manufacturing by giving manufactures an opportunity to open their doors and show what manufacturing is. Approximately 140 students had the opportunity to tour 5 local advance manufacturing companies: Multivac, Haldex, Martinrea, US Farathane and Marlen International.


Students had the opportunity to tour the facility floors and see equipment being manufactured first hand. They visited the different departments to learn about career opportunities available in the industry and education required for different positions. All five company tours were a success and the companies reported they enjoyed hosting the students and look forward to future opportunities to engage with education partners.

Platte County welcomes experienced prosecutor back

Justin Kalwei.jpg

The Platte County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office has welcomed back an experienced prosecutor.  Justin Kalwei, who left the office in 2015 for private practice, returned to the office as a trial team leader on September 11.

Platte County Prosecuting Attorney Eric Zahnd said, “Platte County is very fortunate to regain the high-caliber services of Justin Kalwei.  He is an outstanding advocate for the State of Missouri who has an unwavering commitment to justice and victim rights.”

Kalwei served in the office from 2007 to 2015.  A husband and father of three, Kalwei said his decision to leave the office in 2015 was difficult, but he did so in order to earn more money for his family.

However, when the chance arose to recommit his career to public service, Kalwei seized the opportunity.  Chris Seufert, a longtime assistant prosecutor and trial team leader, recently relocated with his family to Houston, opening a leadership position in the office.

“I am grateful and honored to be able to return to the prosecutor’s office to serve the citizens of Platte County and the State of Missouri,” Kalwei said.  “I was eager to return to an office that consistently pursues justice with the highest standards of professionalism, and I look forward to practicing again in front of Platte County’s judges.”

Kalwei graduated from William Jewell College in 2002 and UMKC Law School in 2006.  He practiced briefly with a law firm before joining Zahnd’s office.

A photo of Kalwei is above.  If you need additional information, please contact our office’s media liaison, Tanya Faherty.

Housing Policy

At this months Public Policy Committee meeting, Councilmen Scott Wagner and Quinton Lucas provided information regarding Kansas City's proposed housing policy. Kansas City has not had an official housing policy for over a decade. Instead, it's been dictated by HUD's 5 year policy. 

Some of the concerns expressed were:

  • The proposed policy should be more defined, specifically consider the impact of the definition of affordable.

  • Affordable is not required if not incentivized and if not a significant public investment in infrastructure. What is a significant investment? 

  • Expedited permitting for affordable projects puts other projects at the bottom of an already long process.

  • Housing development costs could increase more. Profit margins for housing development have stayed the same for 20 years, but lot prices have increased by $20,000. 

Councilmen Wagner and Lucas indicated that the current proposed housing policy, is just a starting point of conversations. The intent is that the policy will not be a one size fits all. 


Platte County EDC welcomes new members

  • Synergy Services - Synergy Services strengthens the individual, family and community through crisis intervention, shelter, counseling, advocacy and education.

  • City Rent A Truck - City Rent A Truck offers a full line of vans and work trucks for rent and lease.


Board Member Highlight

At our August Board meeting, Board Chair Aaron Schmidt, shared the history of Hunt Midwest and their services offered. Hunt Midwest is a Kansas City-based, full-service real estate development company with a focus on industrial, commercial, retail, mission critical, multi-family, senior housing and residential real estate.
