TKC EXCLUSIVE!!! KANSAS CITY COUNCIL MEMBERS MELBA AND JERMAINE HAVE A "BLONDE" MOMENT!!!
Thanks to a City Hall insider . . . Here's a bit of insight about a recent controversial City Hall decision . . .
"Nobody at City Hall liked condemning those houses on the Eastside. But, the longer we waited the more money it would have cost to get started on the East Patrol project. The time constraints were all related to the financing of the project, sitting around and waiting is always the WORST thing when it comes to construction."

"What EVERYONE was really disappointed with was the performance of the 3rd District Council members in conveying this information to their constituents and trying to find some kind of middle-ground."
There were even alternatives according to this insider:
"With KCPS sitting on top of many empty schools in the area, why didn't new the East Patrol project at least consider using the property or raze the land to relocate the project???"
Even mentioning those ideas could have refocused the conversation.
Instead, we hear there wasn't much accomplished in the "discussions" about the project in Councilman Reed's office . . .
The insider says, "It was definitely a BLONDE moment for 3rd District representation"

"All of the other Council members and most City Staff believe that they dropped the ball."
