Ordinance#: 130953: Section 1. That the Director of General Services is authorized to execute, on behalf of the City, a contract amendment in the amount of $2,273,542.00 with Helix Architects + Design for design services for Project No. 07000168 – Kansas City East Police Department Campus from funds previously appropriated to Account No. AL-3431-078023-B-07000168.

Now, in fairness, shifting around cash in a hurry isn't so surprising but this post is simply a reminder that Kansas City has COMPLETELY SCREWED-UP almost every aspect of this construction project that is now struggling to recover from a bill that's $20 MILLION OVER-BUDGET and counting.
