TKC BREAKING AND EXCLUSIVE NEWS!!! DEADBEAT KANSAS CITY: CITY HALL FINED BECAUSE THEY DIDN'T PAY BILLS ON TIME!!!



Kansas City faces an IMPORTANT FACT CHECK this evening that puts everything about our misplaced local priorities in perspective.

To wit . . .

THE MOST KICK-ASS TKC TIPSTERS REVEAL CITY HALL FACING THOUSANDS IN FINES AND EMBARRASSING TURN-OFF NOTICES OVER LATE BILL PAY!!! IT SEEMS OUR LOCAL GOV IS JUST ABOUT AS BROKE-ASS AS EVERYBODY ELSE IN THIS COWTOWN!!!

Here's the word . . .

"A city finance officer cost the city over $16,000 in penalties for not paying utility bills. MGE almost turned off the gas at a couple locations. Not the first time--probably more penalties than we know for nonpayment or late payment of bills."

We've confirmed this one with a couple of our best sources and here's what we're taking from tonight's EPIC report . . .

THE CURRENT EPOCH OF MAYOR SLY JAMES IS BOTH BROKE AND INCOMPETENT DESPITE SO MUCH PUBLIC RELATIONS SAVVY THAT DOESN'T PAY THE BILLS AT THE END OF THE DAY!!!

Deadbeat Kansas City is part of an ongoing bit of INVESTIGATIVE AND GULLY JOURNALISM we're conducing on this blog that readers will soon see in other places too but FIRST on TKC. Natch.

Developing . . .

You think it's bad now. Just wait for the streetcar phase II. Then you will really see KC burning through cash.

KC really does parallel Detroit. When will they usher their Kwame Kilpatrick like Mayor out in shackles. I'll wait...

Well, at least we know where THIS $16,000 ended up.

Fuck 'em! And fuck that refrigerator built Mayor! All of them are crooks. Who do you think pays those late fees? Us, the citizens, in increased wasted taxes 1/4 penny at a fucking time!

WELCOME TO DETROIT said...

Why didn't they pass an ordinance authorizing taking money from fountains, public safety, trash pickup, or pot hole repair recognizing an emergency like they do everything else to pay the bill?

Which department?

CK will be like living in Dantes Inferno by the time Sly and crew get finished with it.

Don't worry the toy choo choo is going to fix this problem.

Is that why the electricity went off in some parts of town this afternoon? Are Slies KCPL payments up to date?

Sounds like the mayor and council need to fire the city manager and at least one department director.

I work for the city and had issues with them not paying their bills. I was sent to the emergency room approx. 8 times over about 15 years for on the job injuries. Well when i went to refinance my house when rates dropped i couldnt refinance because i was in collections for 6 of the 8 bills. So i got stuck paying a higher rate till i sold the property. Would like to get reimbursed for about 6 years of interest that i paid about 4 points over prime but that wont happen. The only good thing that happened was i finally got the city to pay the bills and fixing my credit.

That's the problem with KCmo, they run this city like an election campaign and not like a business.

Well, they were trying to run the city like a business and outsource ambulance billing but that hasn't gone any where!

Mayor Sly must be another proud graduate of the Emanuel Cleaver school for deadbeat politicians. Theres nothing I like better as a taxpayer than supporting politicians who live better than me while trying to screw me out of even more money.

Sly can call in the UN to settle the late accounts payable. What happens to citizens that can't pay their bills? In KCK the sheriff's swat team puts a machine gun to your head and steals your stuff. Happy 4th.
