TKC EXCLUSIVE AND BREAKING NEWS!!! SHOCKING SIGNS OF KANSAS CITY AREA BORDER WAR SNOW REMOVAL DISPARITY!!!



Once again we're reporting a shameful state of affairs that no other media outlet in Kansas City will dare mention.

Check it . . .

TODAY SNOW REMOVAL DISPARITY IS ONCE AGAIN EVIDENT IN THE BORDER WAR BETWIXT KANSAS CITY, MISSOURI AND THE GOLDEN GHETTO OF JOHNSON COUNTY!!!

The Cleaner streets, better schools and prettier wives of JoCo are all indications that we're losing the border war here in Kansas City proper but here's the news we're breaking that really stands out:

KANSAS CITY CAN'T DELIVER SERVICES IN 7 INCHES OF SNOW!!!



KCMO: City suspends trash and recycling services today

The City of Kansas City, Mo., Public Works Department announces that trash, recycling and bulky item services have been suspended today, Wednesday, Feb. 5, due to the inclement weather.

Trash, recycling and bulky services will be delayed one day for the remainder of the week. Residents who usually receive this service on Wednesdays will receive it Thursday, Feb. 6. Residents who usually receive this service on Thursdays will receive it Friday, Feb. 7. Residents who usually receive this service on Fridays will receive it Saturday, Feb. 8.

--30--

Meanwhile . . .

OVERLAND PARK MALL IS ALREADY REOPENED AND DOING BRISK SNOW BIZ!!!

Like it or not and more important than e-tax whining and running a close 2nd to our crime problem . . . The FAIL of Kansas City services is what chases so many businesses and people across the State Line. Sadly, a new toy train streetcar isn't going to lure them back.

Maybe this is what the voters get if they keep on staying home?

Sure glad we passed that etax to ensure excellence in basic services such as these.

And you same rubes will vote for the extension the next time around...why you ask? Because you're dumbass rubes that's why.

Maybe KCMO should get a decent city administrator and public works director Troy and Sherri are absolutely worthless

It would probably also help if KC had a mayor who didn't look at his job as simply being a cheerleader and snake oil salesman.
When the national news and the Weather Channel come to town because KC's in the middle of the snow storm, what does he say?
They're here to watch how well KC plows streets, because they know how great the city is!
Reality seems so boring when you can try to make up stuff yourself.

Historians who look back on these strange years of suspended consequence will marvel at how this local empire of grift kept its wheels turning after its ethical engine died. Being on the downhill slope is often enough to keep anything going.

JoCo even has heated Dogloos with HBO. CK is a total failure.

Just another reason I laugh at those who thumb their noses at JoCo because KCMO has the "cultural" venues. While that is absolutely correct, how many times a year do you use the Kauffman Center (which is splendid, btw)or the Folly compared to Target, Macys, Petsmart and other "suburban yawns?" I much prefer living in a safe, clean neighborhood with good schools, convenient shopping and good public services (streets, emergency response, etc.)and go into "the city" for a concert, play, etc. once in awhile.

Big cities in the northern half of the US have to live with the reality of snow removal. It's not glamourous. It's right there with trash removal as resume material for higher office. However, it's as vital to the livability of the city as virtually anything else under the direct control of those elected to serve.

It's time for our city leaders to come to grips with the realities of running an operation the size of Kansas City. It's time to come to grips with the fact that when you cannot manage snow removal, you don't deserve to get the resume building, glamorous shiny new extras such as toy trains, convention hotels and unwanted airports.

It takes discipline to run a city just as it takes discipline to raise a child. No toy train until you learn how to manage city services. No desert until you finish your broccoli. It's really as simple as that.

P.S. If you want to get snow plowing right, start by putting GPS trackers in the trucks and log where they are plowing. Yesterday I watched a four truck wedge driving down Passeo that was better suited to handling four foot drifts on the interstate in northern Iowa. When you see this sort of nonsense on your GPS logs, correct it. Split them into twos (that's all it takes to handle snow across the rest of the snow belt).

After you get that figured out, set up a schedule of streets and follow it. My side street is two blocks long and connects two heavily travelled streets two blocks apart. It won't be plowed. It never is. However, Last week a street cleaner cleaned it twelve times (six in each direction).

While KCMO is out there making excuses for their poor snow removal ("it's really hard to plowing all this snow on all these roads"), other cities are out there making their roads drivable for their constituents.

The only thing that counts for KC is the P&L District is open. When you spend $12 million every year, you know what is important to KC elite.

Thats because Johnson County tends to elect qualified candidates to run the cities. KCMO is just a joke and a pain in the ass.

Every week there is something new.

Here's what the City said about trash and recycling services on Monday....

News from City Hall
City Communications Office
City of Kansas City, Mo.
www.kcmo.org
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Feb. 3, 2014

City crews preparing for 6-10 inches of snow Tuesday

"Trash and recycling services will be on schedule, but bulky pickup services will be suspended tomorrow to allow those crews to assist with snow removal."

The way KCMO is run would be hilarious if not so pathetically and pathologically incompetent.

Anonymous said...

Hey folks, you just better be thankful KCMO was PREPARED for this storm. Just think of the condition of the streets if they had NOT been prepared!!!

Lees summit and the northland have a better quality of life than Johnson county

Anonymous said...

KCMO can't manage basic services in the parts of the City that are already developed, but can spend $40 million to extend sewers in the northland in order to open up 13,000 scores to new development.

Reminds me of Matthew 23:
Then Jesus said to the crowds and to his disciples: 2 “The teachers of the law and the Pharisees sit in Moses’ seat. 3 So you must be careful to do everything they tell you. But do not do what they do, for they do not practice what they preach. 4 They tie up heavy, cumbersome loads and put them on other people’s shoulders, but they themselves are not willing to lift a finger to move them.

5 “Everything they do is done for people to see: They make their phylacteries[a] wide and the tassels on their garments long; 6 they love the place of honor at banquets and the most important seats in the synagogues; 7 they love to be greeted with respect in the marketplaces and to be called ‘Rabbi’ by others.

13 “Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You shut the door of the kingdom of heaven in people’s faces. You yourselves do not enter, nor will you let those enter who are trying to. [14] [b]

15 “Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You travel over land and sea to win a single convert, and when you have succeeded, you make them twice as much a child of hell as you are."

In the small town on the outskirts of Kansas City that I live in, the snow plows have already been down my cul-de-sac 3 times. The street is cleared from curb to curb with a generous application of salt and sand.

all of you are full of shit. for the size of KCMO, it does a pretty good job providing basic services, and yes, even snow removal. If you don't like it, move. If you live somewhere else (which most of you probably do), shut the fuck up.

I live in south KCMO. If I didn't have a 4x4 there is absolutely no way I would be at work right now. No chance what-so-ever. KCMO is broken ... sadly broken beyond repair. The city leaders do not give one fuck about the citizens, their need for basic services, and an absolute need for those citizens to GET TO WORK!

Every single city besides KCMO has better cleared streets. This is a fact and it happens time and time again. I admit the KCMO artery roads are plowed ... RIGHT DOWN TO THE ICE THEY LEFT FROM LAST FRIDAY! There is no salt. There is no treatment. Tomorrow morning is going to be an absolute nightmare downtown KCMO. It is ice now and will be ice tomorrow AM.

Roads are pretty bad here in OPKS too. 12 inches of snow. Olathe 16 inches of snow. South OPKS 17 inches of snow. We just need to give it a few days.

I'm curious how much shovel time Antonio has put in this week. Methinks none.

I have to agree with 10:32 on last Friday's ice, but I think the city did a great job this time around. My side street (in Waldo) was plowed sometime this morning after 6 AM, and it wasn't plowed curb-to-curb, but it was wider than usual. A neighbor was just coming home from NKC at 6 AM when I went out to get the paper (I was surprised the carrier made it through), and she said the main streets were pretty good. All-in-all, not bad for a cowtown this size dealing with a storm this big.

Yo, I woke up at 7 a.m. today and my street already had been plowed. That's normal here in JoCo. That's why I live where I do. Yeah, I'm another rich white-ass elitist mofo. I make 40 grand a year and drive a cheap heap and shop at Wally World. Don't be givin' me any of your cheap-ass golden ghetto bullshit. You like living in the Third World? Hey, that's great. But it's not for me.

The reason the "cowtown" is this size is because CK started playing a Ponzi scheme with property taxes back in the 50's. That's when it annexed the northland and parts of South KC (against the wishes of many of the people who lived there, I might add) in order to capture the existing property taxes AND to open up new land for development that the racist "block busting" real estate players (e.g. JC Nichols) wanted.

That provided an immediate boost in property taxes that the City then put into new infrastructure in green fields (i.e. streets, sewers and water lines) and made developers and builders rich, but which was not sustainable in terms of maintenance or replacement.

And now the bill is coming due.

the city should retreat to the 75th street borders, let waldo bars stay open all night like they did when this city was fun

Last plow came down our street 24 hours ago. Last plow came down the main route into the neighborhood 26 hours ago.

EPIC FAIL. It was better last year, and we had more snow last year.

If CK had fewer assistant city managers at $160,000 each, maybe they could have more plow drives. Right Pat? Quit lurking on TKC, Facebook, and Twitter and get back to work. Oh wait, THAT is your pitiful job.

I live in Overland Park and work downtown and the snow plowing in Johnson County is not any better. Never is. A bunch of private HOAs have snow plowers, but the city streets are EXACTLY the same as KCMO's all the fucking time. This is the weirdest KC fetish complaint of them all.
