TKC EXCLUSIVE!!! MUST READ!!! NORTHLAND PERSPECTIVE ON LEAVING KANSAS CITY THANKS TO HORRIBLE SNOW REMOVAL!!!
Right now we're getting a brief respite in the weather . . . But we're just starting winter and already this is nothing less than the season of discontent in Kansas City.
To wit . . .
CHECK THIS TKC EXCLUSIVE INSIDER TESTIMONY REGARDING SNOW REMOVAL (OR LACK THEREOF) ON THE RIGHT SIDE THE BRIDGE!!!
It's fun and educational and something the Mayor's people don't want anybody to see . . . Which makes it a perfect way to start this morning . . .
Take a peek:
If this week's baby snow is any indication, it's time to move to the burbs. It snowed 4-5" Saturday night. Early Sunday morning I was driving through Gladstone on a major artery. It was a plowed, wet street. I come over a hill and cross into KCMO and hit unplowed, snow-covered streets until I got to a state highway. Once I got off the highway it was unplowed snow all the way home. That was Sunday morning. The first plow arrived in the neighborhood today, 4 days late, and accomplished nothing other than piling ice blocks in front of everyone's driveways and blocking access to the mailboxes. The trash trucks had no problem on Monday but the recycling trucks never showed. They got about half the neighborhood on Tuesday and then never came back.
You want to attract people to KC? Stop taxing them 1% extra for services that, if performed at a similar level in the surrounding suburbs, would get people fired.
PS - I know the city doesn't like cul-de-sacs. That's because they don't understand that cul-de-sac is French for "pays-most of the-taxes."
