TKC BREAKING AND EXCLUSIVE NEWS!!! MAYOR SLY PUSHES CONTROVERSIAL EMERGENCY ORDINANCE TO OUTSOURCE KANSAS CITY FIRE DEPARTMENT JOBS!!!
Here's the RAGE among the rank and file denizens of Kansas City's Fire Department that threatens local jobs.
AFTER AN EARLY DEFEAT . . . MAYOR SLY IS MAKING IT A PERSONAL AND EMERGENCY PRIORITY TO OUTSOURCE KANSAS CITY FIRE DEPARTMENT JOBS!!!
This time the KCFD rank & file is getting a good look at the Mayor's particular brand of "win at all costs" politics . . .
This story is interesting for a lot of reasons but mostly because it turns KCMO preconceived notions upside down . . . Here's what this tale is telling us:
- Rather than do any research, the newspaper has stopped printing anything negative about the Mayor
- TKC is actually very supportive of rank & file KCFD
- Mayor Sly is clearly working at the behest of power brokers and not thinking about the implications for workers further down the food chain.
As always . . .

Here's the word:
Sly Controls The Council . . . Schulte Runs The Fire Department
The fight to keep local jobs for the KCFD billing department has had some serious consequences. Seems that Mayor James was so infuriated that his plan to outsource the jobs to a company in Florida fell through, he reintroduced the failed Ordinance 140208 through the Finance and Ethics Committee himself.
This Week's Agenda
To ensure he gets what he wants, Sly also fired Councilman Sharp from Finance and Ethics and replaced him with Wagner. Payback to Sharp for doing the right thing and exposing this bad deal.
Do you think Kansas City's citizens would be ok with all of their private identification and medical info being handed over to this company?
Again, here's the summary of the ordinance that's earning a strange bit of interest from Kansas City's Mayor:
#140208: Authorizing the Fire Chief to enter into a contract with Advanced Data Processing, Inc., a subsidiary of Intermedix Corporation, to perform emergency medical services billing for the City’s ambulance services (Contract #EV1830); estimating revenue in the amount of $130,770.00 and appropriating it from the Unappropriated Fund Balance of the Ambulance Services Fund; and recognizing an emergency.
