KANSAS CITY STREETCAR EXTENSION OPPOSITION: SEE YOU IN COURT!!!
A quick note from Kansas City tax fighters prepares their group for a show-down regarding the fate of the TOY TRAIN.
Take a look . . .
Streetcar Extension Proposal. Court Presentation Date Set! Here come more taxes!!!
If you are tired of more taxes being piled on top of an already above average tax base: If you are tired of your utility bills going up at alarming rates because city hall has elected to charge all the taxpayers for the utility work done on the streetcar line, rather than just those taxpayers in the TDD. These charges total millions of dollars and because they are not added into the cost the city quotes you for the streetcar, the streetcar cost is under estimated by these same millions of dollars.
It’s time to stand up and tell your councilperson NO MORE STREETCAR TAXES, we have more important things to fund. Remember, city hall will be back shortly with a city-wide bond proposal for “infrastructure repairs” this will add millions more in debt to the taxpayers and raise taxes throughout the city even more . . .
Do not believe it when city hall tells you “it doesn’t cost the taxpayers living outside the TDD anything.” We’re not stupid, look at your utility bills. This eight mile extension could easily cost $700,000,000 - $800,000,000.
"The Jackson County Circuit Court has scheduled a hearing in September for people to weigh in on a proposal to extend the Kansas City streetcar south of downtown.
"The court will hold a public hearing on the question of creating and funding a proposed streetcar taxing district. The hearing is set for 9 a.m. Sept. 15."
See you in court on September 15th. Bring your sign! Let’s put an end to this madness once and for all. Visit our Facebook page for more details on the streetcar and the airport fiascos.
