Right now . . .
THE TOPIC GAINING MOMENTUM IN KANSAS CITY IS THE EFFORT TO PUT THE REMOVED STOPLIGHTS BACK!!!
Check previous TKC reporting, blogging and sarcasm on the subject:
At the outset of the controversy TKC Tipsters provided EXCLUSIVE insight.
The controversy continued for most of October and started to put real pressure on the Council.
TKC FACT . . . Let's not forget the City is slated to remove 170 more stoplights in upcoming months and years . . . Mostly in the 3rd and 5th Districts. The topic came to light while Council was beating up on City Staff.
A Jermaine Reed Ordinance Saved The Day . . . Or at least brought the subject into the limelight @ City Hall.
Finally . . . City Council stopped stoplight removal for the moment.
There's more to report on this subject that seems to show City Hall out of touch with local residents . . . Especially in the urban core.
