North Kansas City Council agrees to negotiate settlement with hospital
- Stielow and his colleagues get to try their negotiating skills
After months of public and behind-the-scenes consternation, the North Kansas City Hospital sale discussion may find a timely conclusion both in the courts and in Jefferson City. The North Kansas City Council on Tuesday night voted after a closed session to try to settle a lawsuit against them filed by the city-owned hospital’s board of trustees.
That vote quietly preceded a bill landing on Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon’s desk that would require a public vote to approve any sale of the hospital.
