TKC BREAKING AND EXCLUSIVE NEWS!!! SORRY MAYOR SLY!!! RESIDENTS: KANSAS CITY SNOW REMOVAL STAYS LOSING!!!
A big week for Kansas City Mayor Sly ended with a disappointment and a reality check regarding the state of City Services.
To wit . . .
ACCORDING TO TKC SCIENTIFIC RESEARCH MOST KANSAS CITY VOTERS REMAIN DISAPPOINTED WITH SNOW REMOVAL DESPITE HIGH PROFILE EFFORTS AT IMPROVEMENT FROM MAYOR SLY'S ADMINISTRATION!!!
Sorry, I'm joking just a bit . . . Not about scientific research but about the Mayor's efforts . . . He works on the streetcar and hopes for a 1k room hotel on most days.
Anyhoo . . . The snowfall serves as a reality check for Kansas City progress, hope and change during Mayor Sly's tenure.
To his credit, Mayor Sly made great use of social media and his reporter buddies to blast the message that he was "on the job" as the snow came down. Still, as the day dragged on it was clear from all of the abandoned cars and barely passable streets that Mayor Sly's efforts hadn't paid off.
Again, in fairness . . .
CRAPPY SNOW REMOVAL IS A LONG STANDING KANSAS CITY PROBLEM!!! EVEN WORSE, NEIGHBORHOOD LEADERS CONSTANTLY LAMENT CITY STRATEGY THAT KEEPS SNOW PLOWS AWAY FROM SIDE STREETS!!!
Voter and neighborhood dissatisfaction over snow removal was one of the many factors that led to the demise of former Mayor Funky.
And speaking of scientific proof . . .
WAIT A FEW MOMENTS AND CHECK THE KANSAS CITY SNOW PLOW MAP TO PROVE A GREAT MANY RESIDENTS CORRECT!!!
A screen shot from this morning . . .
Yes, GPS reveals plows on major streets but just look outside and notice that a "once over" wasn't going to cut it during this "snow state of emergency" looming over Kansas City.
A bit more local testimony . . .
This came up in the comments last night . . .
"Snow removal my ass. In Brookside we hired a private contractor to clear the side streets because we NEVER see a city plow."
A few calls later, this checks out . . . There are more than a few nice neighborhoods in Midtown Kansas City that take care of their own snow removal rather than waiting for City plows that never arrive.
To wit . . .
Mayor Sly might want to make snow angels and pray for a quick melt or grab a shovel rather than going through with his SNOW REMOVAL TOUCHDOWN DANCE that AWESOME TKC TIPSTERS tell us he has planned for later today.
DEVELOPING . . .
