TKC BREAKING AND EXCLUSIVE NEWS!!! MAYOR SLY'S RESOLUTION PROPOSES NEARLY ALL OF KANSAS CITY'S CASH FROM MISSOURI TRANSPORTATION TAX ROUTED TO THE TOY TRAIN STREETCAR!!!
It's kind of been transit day here @ TKC but there's just a great deal of news to report on this topic . . . Take a look at Kansas City Mayor Sly already putting Kansas City on track to spend Missouri Transportation Tax money that could come as a result of a recent vote on the toy train.
To wit . . .
CITY HALL INSIDERS RAGE OF MAYOR SLY'S PROPOSAL TO DIRECT ALL OF KANSAS CITY'S TRANSPORTATION TAX TO THE TOY TRAIN WHEN THIS TOWN HAS SO MANY OTHER ROADWAY PROJECTS THAT HAVE BEEN DELAYED!!!
Here's the word . . .
Deets with the most important part UNDERLINED:
"The state’s contribution to Phase 2 of the Kansas City Streetcar project shall total $210M over the life of the 10 year transportation sales tax. The $210M budget shall include the $20M capital funding for Prospect MAX and $50M for Streetcar Phase 2, the full amount of the City’s 5% share of the tax identified for cities statewide, and MoDOT discretionary funds above and beyond the formula of funds committed to the MoDOT Kansas City District."
Like it or not, this is just another example of local priories being twisted to power a controversial eco-devo scheme.
