152/Kansas Project:

What You Should Know

The bridge on Route 152 over I-35 will be closed for 4 months beginning in May 2019. Lane closures on Kansas Street and Route 291 will also be expected during construction.

You can view a simulation of the new interchange, construction maps, and detour maps HERE.

Platte County DWI Treatment Court achieving success

Platte County DWI Treatment Court achieving success:

Only two of 119 graduates has been convicted of another DWI

When Platte County began the first DWI Treatment Court in the Kansas City metro area nearly eight years ago, Judge Dennis Eckold and Prosecuting Attorney Eric Zahnd were cautiously optimistic that it would be a success. But neither one of them would have predicted that only two of the court’s 119 graduates would be convicted of another DWI.

Judge Eckold said, “When we set out to plan a DWI Treatment Court about 8 1⁄2 years ago, we wanted to change behaviors and drastically reduce repeat offenses. We wanted to try to get to the root of the problem. This program is sobriety court. It’s about being accountable and committed. It’s a rigorous program with many requirements. It’s not perfect, but I’m very encouraged by the results so far.”

A recent recidivism study confirms the startling success of the court. With a recidivism rate of less than 2%, the court is achieving a success rate that is nearly unheard of in criminal justice. By comparison, a recent study by the Pew Charitable Trusts showed that, in 12 states including Missouri, 37 percent of people sent to prison for any crime were back in prison within three years.

Zahnd said, “Treatment courts are an incredibly effective alternative to prison that often cut short what otherwise would become a life of crime.”

Zahnd recounted meeting two graduates of the Platte County DWI Treatment Court in 2018 during Parkville’s annual Independence Day parade. Both men credited the treatment court for “saving their lives” by helping them escape the bonds of alcoholism.

“Platte County’s DWI Treatment Court changes people’s lives for the better, and that’s good for our entire community,” Zahnd said.

Platte County’s DWI Treatment Court began in 2012, and was the first of its kind in the Kansas City metro. In the years following, Platte County has added mental health and drug treatment courts. The county is now working to establish a veteran’s court.

The DWI Treatment Court is a comprised of a team that includes:

  • The Platte County Circuit Court

  • The Prosecuting Attorney’s Office

  • The Missouri Department of Probation and Parole

  • Tri-County Mental Health Services

  • Midwest ADP (which provides probation and counseling services)

  • The Platte County Sheriff’s Department (which provides trackers)

  • Northland Alternative Service Program

  • Electronic Sentencing Alternatives

  • Tomo Drug Testing

  • Professor Greg Plumb of Park University

  • Criminal defense attorney Mark Ferguson

It is funded by the Clay-Platte-Ray mental health levy.

Tri-County Mental Health Services CEO Tom Petrizzo said, “The Platte County DWI Court is a great example of a highly successful community partnership. It brings together court personnel, prosecutor, defense bar, probation and treatment specialists who, in unison, create a positive lasting impact on individuals and families who may be struggling with the adverse effects of addiction.”

The DWI Treatment Court holds periodic graduation ceremonies, which are open to the public. The next graduation ceremony is scheduled for February 28 at 3:00 p.m. in the Platte County Commission Meeting Room.

For more information, please contact Tanya Faherty, media liaison for the Platte County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office, at (816) 858-3476 or via email at tfaherty@co.platte.mo.us.

A NOTE FROM THE CHAIRMAN

DALE BROUK, FIVESTAR LIFESTYLES

Last week at the Board meeting we provided the 2018 Annual Report which sums up a remarkable year of accomplishments under the leadership of Past Chair Aaron Schmidt.

As I look forward to my role as the 2019 Chairman it comes with cautious optimism. The economy is strong today but headwinds from China, Brexit, and an ever changing political environment can be cause for reflection. These global headwinds coupled with state and local hurdles challenge us every day and it is how we work through them that make our companies better, stronger and more profitable. I have always lived by the motto “change is good, you must embrace it and make it work for you!”

The Platte County Economic Development Council (PCEDC) has its own set of challenges in 2019. We again are faced will a zero based budget, which in simple terms means our revenues equal our expenses. As with our own businesses we should not be satisfied with breaking even. I am asking you to please keep in the forefront what PCEDC has done for your business and Platte County.

I look forward to serving as Chairman and working with my team, Mike Duffy, Co-Chair, Mike Reik, Treasurer and the Past Chair, Aaron Schmidt. And as we all know, none of this happens without Alicia Stephens, Stephanie Deppen and Molly Ramirez. A special thanks to Stephanie Neppl for all her help in 2018 and we wish her the best of success in her new endeavors in Iowa.

Let 2019 bring success to ongoing projects such as KCI Airport and the Northland Youth Sports Complex. Read on to find ways you can involved. We can't do our work without your support.

Opportunities for Involvement

Strategic Plan Update

The mission of PCEDC is to promote, enhance and grow economic development in Platte County, MO. In so doing, we strive to improve the business environment, our communities and the quality of life in all of Platte County. In late 2017, consultant Janet Ady conducted interviews with key stakeholders and a year ago she provided her report. Based on her findings, we got to work on the new plan. 2018 was the year of refinement and the new plan is a result of that effort. All strategies are mapped out in detail in our strategic plan.

News & Updates

KCMO Pre-K Sales Tax Ballot Issue

As recommended by the Public Policy Committee, the PCEDC Board of Directors took a position regarding the proposed KCMO Pre-K sales tax ballot issue. John Elliott made the motion that although the PCEDC believes in the need for Pre-K education for ALL children, it does not support the proposed sales tax as a funding mechanism. Dale Brouk seconded the motion. Cathleen Flournoy and Nathan BeVelle abstained. The remaining Board members voted in favor and the motion passed. The PCEDC feels strongly that this discussion needs to occur with our leaders at the State.
