INQUIRING TKC READER MIND WANTS TO KNOW: HOW CAN GET OUT OF PAYING THE KANSAS CITY ZOO FOREVER TAX AFTER FREE DAY RUCKUS DISASTER?!?!
Here's an important Kansas City question that deserves an answer . . .
LET'S EXAMINE THE CONSEQUENCES OF THE KANSAS CITY ZOO FREE DAY NOW ON HOLD!!!
A more inquisitive soul than TKC is putting this one out there . . . Feel free to attempt an answer . . .
"The ordinance (4334) passed by the county that allowed the zoo tax to be placed on the ballot specifically cites the pledge for free admission on certain days. Since those free days are being suspended shouldn't collection of the tax also be suspended? I am not the sharpest knife in the drawer by any means, but if I had entered into a contract with that language and now my co party was not living up to the terms I would stop paying!!"
Sadly, we know that in Kansas City the tax and spend lifestyle of our local politicos never quits and the only real escape is by way of U-Haul . . . Still, it's a nice thought that KCMO failing to live up to their part of the bargain could offer a way out of at least one forever tax.
