CELEBRATE!!! KANSAS CITY MAYOR SLY AND COUNCIL PREPARE TO RAISE TAXES AGAIN!!!



For the lucky seventh time in less than 4 years Mayor Sly and the City Council get ready to ask Kansas City to pay more for a declining level of service.

Here's a preview of the upcoming ask . . .

KCUR: Kansas City Council Considers August Ballot For Sales Tax Issue

Deets:

"Kansas City, Mo., residents can expect to be asked to renew a sales tax in August. But meeting fire department needs may take more than that.

The quarter-cent sales tax created 14 years ago currently funds less than 14 percent of the fire department's $145 million budget. Personnel costs account for 90 percent of that budget."

Perspective . . .



REMEMBER TKC EXCLUSIVE REPORTING REVEALING KANSAS CITY FIRE DEPARTMENT OVER-BUDGET ON OVERTIME AND FAILING TO MAKE ANY OF THE CUTS THEY PROMISED!!!

Meanwhile, calling most City Hall help lines is about as effective as smoke signals and they teased bringing back regularly scheduled bulky item pickup but then balked.

I guess you can't blame the Fire Dept.. They have played by the rules but the city manager keeps slashing more and more.

Schulte cut the FD budget by 16 million and bitches cause they are 8 million over? Try filling the 39 vacant positions, if you don't like overtime.

Here is yet another example of duplicitous double standards when it comes to racism and Democrats. Wayne Dupree at Newsninja.com shared this incredible account of New Jersey Democrat Marie Strumolo Burke. She is chairman of the Belleville, New Jersey City Council and the mayoral candidate for the same town. She can be clearly heard in the background expressing that the tax rates are going to turn her town into “A F**&%#g nigger town.”

It's actually keeping an existing tax not raising, but why would tony report the truth

And who wouldn't want to pay higher taxes for the privilege of living in KCMO with its fine schools, strong infrastructure and quality of life? Bwhahahahaha!

Stupid sniveling cul-de-sac suburban parisites! You can never even imagine being as smart as me, which is why I am transferring all out money to my brilliant streetcar idea.

So just shut up and pay you subhuman scum. Now if you excuse me Mrs Heather Brown and I have some gardening to attend to up here on Tiffany Springs Parkway.

Tax in Kansas City is nearly 10% as it is now. Don't even try staying at a hotel in Kansas City where its nearly 13-16% on top of the room rate. City charges a fixed development tax of $2.00, then another fixed tax and on top of that the 13-16%. This is not LA, this is not NYC or any other big town. You'll find that people avoid Kansas City altogether. Even rich people complain about the taxes, then they ask for a discount on the room to afford the tax. This town is crazy. My vote is no.

This tax is probably the "anonymous donors" funding the new UMKC campus downtown.

Get rid of the 20 assistant city managers at $200,000 per and maybe you could improve this shitty city. Just take a look at the mayor, council, and city managers budget. Lots of useless crap there. Agree, time to get rid of Troy Schulte. Any council members lurking here?

10:36 AM Russ lives in the suburban part of Kansas City in the Northland. He is the suburban parasite you referenced.

Let's shit can the streetcar and the airport bull shit. Put another 100 policemen on the street with many more in the Plaza, P&L, and Westport and get that mess under control. Fund the fire department and get on down the road...

Mr. Tony,
Oh dear! Extending the same tax that they campaigned as just one more extension?
Where am I going to get my part of the money needed to blow up then rebuild our airport?
How in God's name am I going to pay for that horrid fancy-pants streetcar for the Milly's to ride around on as they suck on their vape cigs?

Oh I beg of this council STOP IT!!! FOR PETE'S SAKE JUST STOP SPENDING MONEY LIKE WATER.

Mayor Sly, please don't go completely off the chain! You is crazy enough already! Swear, we will stick your name on every public building if you will stop hurting us. We give! UNCLE! GREEN BALLOONS!!

What is the absolute feat of the century is that the dumb asses of KC will go vote for the tax.A government could not ask for a bigger pack of numb nuts for constituents.
