SHOULD KANSAS CITY POLITICOS CONSIDER WATER DEPARTMENT PRIVATIZATION RATHER THAN RAISING TAXES & DEBT?!?!
For months we've reported on the prospect of Kansas City Water Department privatization.
Now other news orgs are starting to pick up on this behind the scenes discussion.
THE FACT IS THAT KANSAS CITY WOULD HAVE TO BORROW AND SPEND ITSELF INTO OBLIVION TO REPAIR OUR OLD AND BUSTED WATER & SEWER SYSTEM!!!
There just isn't enough money to borrow and tax in order to do the job. What's worse is that this strategy attacks the interests of the urban core more than any other local interest.
Still . . .
THERE ISN'T ANY KANSAS CITY LEADER WITH THE GUTS TO STEP UP AND EVEN DISCUSSION THE MANY PROPOSITIONS REGARDING WATER DEPT. RESTRUCTURING . . . MAYOR SLY WE'RE ALL LOOKING AT YOU!!!
The strategy of more taxes and debt to fix Kansas City's broken system is questionable at best.
Meanwhile . . . KC is still waiting for the "bold leadership" that was interested in compromise that we heard about during campaign season.
