KANSAS CITY REVIEWS DIVERSITY GOALS!!!
A quick look at 12th & Oak efforts to level the playing field when it comes to awarding sweet City Hall contracts.
"Directing the City Manager to appoint a citizen advisory committee for the purpose of reviewing the City’s processes for establishing minority and women goals on non-construction contracts and making recommendations to the City Council on possible improvements to such processes."
The "non-construction" aspect of this resolution is interesting given that all of the "emergency" eco-devo efforts (like the Toy Train) recently championed by Mayor and Council pretty much throw WBE/MBE requirements out the window. And while reactionaries who are mostly out of the loop rage at this kind of "diversity" talk . . . Given the corporate feeding frenzy currently underway on the 26th floor . . . A bit of fair play is more than deserved.
