TKC EXCLUSIVE AND BREAKING NEWS!!! KANSAS CITY DOWNTOWN BIZ FEAR ANOTHER JJ'S STYLE GAS EXPLOSION AMID UPCOMING TOY TRAIN STREETCAR WORK!!!
This morning we must give voice to the Kansas City Dowtown Toy Train construction fear of small businesses that no other media outlet dares report.
To wit . . .
KANSAS CITY DOWNTOWN BIZ PEOPLE FEAR UPCOMING DOWNTOWN CONSTRUCTION MIGHT SPARK A JJ'S STYLE EXPLOSION!!!
The fears of Downtown biz people aren't unjustified . . . Remember earlier this year we offered and EXCLUSIVE image of an unexplained Downtown blowout that sent fear through nearby biz owners.
Sadly, toy train streetcar construction brings higher stakes and more dangerous work ahead.
The main complaint revolves around knowledge of underground public utilities that are old school, undocumented and every bit as explosive as the fare of one of our local burrito joints employing people who often fit that same description . . .
To wit . . .
CHECK THIS EXCLUSIVE TESTIMONY FROM A DOWNTOWN BIZ OWNER DESCRIBING THE DANGEROUS MAZE OF PUBLIC UTILITIES THAT COULD PROVE EXPLOSIVE DURING TOY TRAIN STREETCAR CONSTRUCTION!!!
KC DOWNTOWN BIZ OWNER SEYZ: "The gas company came out to replace their defective regulator. To replace it they had to shut off the gas. When they removed the cap on the sidewalk, surprise, no shut off valve. To not have this valve is violation of city, state, and federal law.
"They jack hammered up the sidewalk and still no valve. The next day the big crew arrived and jack hammered up Main Street. I spoke with man in charge of the crew and he showed me a pencil sketch of where the line was supposed to be but it wasn't. He stated that this sketch was all they had and he said most of their pipe and shutoff documents were in the same condition . . .
"This is scary as gas company workers have told me that most of the drawings with the locations are a mess, lost or incorrect."
And so . .
THE DANGER OF DOWNTOWN KANSAS CITY CONSTRUCTION PROBLEMS IS REAL AS FEAR OVER EXPLOSION CIRCULATES AMONG SMALL BIZ OWNERS!!!
Sadly, politicos have attempted to diffuse this explosive talk along with complaints about rising Downtown property taxes that are also blowing up.
In the meantime, the effort to push Kansas City's Toy Train Streetcar is mostly comprised of consultants and pr firms who are answering real world construction questions with nothing but propaganda and marketing hype.
