TKC EXCLUSIVE KANSAS CITY TAXPAYER PROTEST!!! DEMAND DISCOUNT FOR 'BLIGHTED' INTERCONTINENTAL ROOMS!!!
Fun tidbit for tonight in between evening news of rape, gunfire and murder . . .
KANSAS CITY RESIDENTS AND POLITICOS RAGE AGAINST INTERCONTINENTAL TAX BREAK AND DEMAND DISCOUNT FROM THE BLIGHTED PROPERTY!!!
Here are just a few of the smarter comments from our blog community.
A bit of a history lesson tonight . . .
"After the folks over at the Alameda (I'm old enough to remember when it was built, so I call it the Alameda) get through consulting with all of the real estate/tax attorneys, etc., they might want to consider spending most of that $16 million on a good PR firm to help them recover from the PR nightmare they are creating for themselves."
Beginning of a plan . . .
"I'd love to call the events department and ask if they have nice space. When they say yes, I'd ask if they were actually blighted."
This call to action is kinda the money . . .
"Whatever these hucksters are charging is too much. Nope, anybody booking a room needs to ask for a better rate. They should hear it from their customers for this effort to take advantage of tools intended to help REAL blight in Kansas City.
