Kansas City agrees to limits on possible sale of NKC hospital

The Kansas City Star, May 1, 2013
The long, raucous dispute over the future of North Kansas City Hospital appears headed to a conclusion that avoids selling the treasured institution. The newly elected mayor and four North Kansas City Council members, who make up a majority of the council, have sent a letter to Gov. Jay Nixon saying they support a bill now before him that would allow a sale only if both the City Council and the hospital agreed. A sale would then have to be submitted to voters. In an interview Tuesday, Mayor Don Stielow said it was also time to end a lawsuit between the city and the hospital because there are better uses for the money being spent on litigation.
