Union Station Backs KC Museum Agreement
KANSAS CITY (AP) - Officials with Kansas City's Union Station have endorsed a plan that would shift management of the Kansas City Museum at Corinthian Hall to the city's parks department.
The Kansas City Star reports the agreement calls for the city to take over managing the museum's collection, most of which belongs to Union Station. The city would also manage the museum's longtime home located in northeast Kansas City.
The approximately $1.4 million in annual tax revenue for the museum would be retained by the city, which would lease space at Union Station for $131,000 a year. The executive committee of Union Station's board voted unanimously in favor of the plan Tuesday.
The City Council is expected to vote on the plan next week.
