TKC BREAKING AND EXCLUSIVE NEWS!!! ACCELERATED $600K ORDINANCE FOR BURNS AND MAC MEANS WE'LL PROBABLY BUILD THE NEW KANSAS CITY AIRPORT!!!
This morning all of the "hard" Kansas City newsies are going to be waiting around for a verdict from Mayor Sly's Kansas City Airport Advisory Committee.
Nobody is gonna talk about the recent ethics inquiry but that's mostly because keeping track of conflicts is like a bad joke in this town.
Now, we realize these pressers are mostly an exercise in double speak and optimism but we stumbled upon a hint of how this thing will eventually turn out during our TOP ECHELON research.
To wit . . .
KANSAS CITY COUNCIL IS MAKING A QUICK AND "ACCELERATED" CASH ADVANCE TO BURNS & MAC SO WE'RE GUESSING THAT THE NEW AIRPORT IS PRETTY MUCH A DONE DEAL!!!
Ordinance #140350: Authorizing a $600,000.00 plus contingency Amendment No. 5 with Burns and McDonnell Engineering Company, Inc. for the Aviation Facilities Development at KCI Airport; and recognizing this ordinance as having an accelerated effective date.
TKC Brief Aside. . . The "accelerated effective date" used to be called an "Emergency" Ordinance but Mayor Sly and Council got tired of getting called on it by this blog and nobody else in KCMO.
Again, we expect the d-bags @ Global Prairie to play some pretty good word games this morning but this committee from Mayor Sly has seemed mostly rigged and just about everybody is ready to write-off critics who actually (gasp!) want voters to have say.
The word will come down later and we'll get around to blogging it but, in the end, now that we've seen "accelerated" cash on the way to a Kansas City engineering power player for the Airport. We pretty much know how this thing is going to play out. The presser is @ 10 and the Biz Journal has a nice look at the convoluted questions the group will approve one way or another.
