TKC BREAKING AND EXCLUSIVE NEWS!!! KANSAS CITY 39TH STREET RESIDENTS AND MERCHANTS CONVERGE ON GOOGLE FIBER HEADQUARTERS FOLLOWING TREE BUTCHERY AND PROPERTY DAMAGE!!!
Yesterday morning THE MOST KICK-ASS TKC TIPSTERS broke news of 39th Street pushback following tree trimming at the behest of Google Fiber.
Today the story continues to move forward as neighbors and merchants organize an effort to save the scenery and shrubbery which makes their location unique.
To wit . . .
TODAY NEIGHBORHOOD ASSOCIATION LEADERS, MERCHANTS AND OTHERS CONVERGED ON GOOGLE FIBER HEADQUARTERS TO VOICE THEIR COMPLAINTS ABOUT TREE BUTCHERY AND PROPERTY DAMAGE!!!
A witness to the scene, who also had property damaged in this week's hot mess, describes it this way:
"The folks @ Google headquarters were definitely surprised to see us when we showed up. After they got a chance to hear our concerns they seemed apologetic," the witness said. "I informed them that they shouldn't underestimate these neighborhood groups. If they want to approach 39th Street and the Volker neighborhood as bullies, they'll get the more resistance than they ever expected."
AND YES . . . AS THE DISCUSSION STARTED THERE WAS EVEN SOME TALK OF A GOOGLE FIBER BOYCOTT!!!
For now, neighbors seem hopeful that Google will "fix what needs to be fixed" but there remain concerns that overenthusiastic tree trimming and damage to property will persist on the road to Kansas City high speed Internets.
And all of this has inspired tonight's playlist . . .
As always, thanks for reading this week and have a safe and fun weekend.
