MGE Makes Mess Of Kansas City Oak Park Site

Fox4 reports even more local complaints over power play and corporate oversight: "Some neighbors in Kansas City’s Oak Park neighborhood are fired up at Missouri Gas Energy crews rolling around their neighborhood. They say the workers, who are installing new natural gas pipelines, are leaving behind a big mess with potential safety hazards."

Here is what is really fucked up. The Missouri Public Utilities Commission requires that when they shut off your gas, even for 30 seconds, these contract workers have to come onto your house and inspect. Now get this. There is no criteria for the i9nspector. He can be a fucking felon drinkard picked up off the streets that morning and there is new no criteria for the inspection. If you refuse to let these narly bastarts stomp through your house MGE woll refuse to turn on your gas. You can thaqnk the dimb sonza b itches in the Missouri state legislature for craming this down our throats. The reall pisser is you have to have the inspection even if no work was done within a half mile of your home or on your property. AND to add insult to injury there is not one god damn state inspection requirement for any of the work that is actually done on the gas lines by these crews. Seriously Folks! State law assumes if you gas is off for 15 seconds your home is a danger, suddenly you equipment is bad and must be inspected, but those contractors? Why their work is just perfect and doesn't even require a second look by anyone of authority. If that doesn't make you want to join the fucking militia I don't know what will.

Now get this. There is no criteria or certification rwquired for the inspector. He can be a fucking felon drunkard picked up off the streets that morning and tp make it more fun there is no criteria for the inspection. It is required, but it is all bullshit.

If you refuse to let these narly bastards stomp through your house MGE will refuse to turn on your gas. You can thank the dumb sonzabitches in the Missouri state legislature for cramming this down our throats. The real pisser is you have to have the inspection even if no work was done within a half mile of your home or on your property.
