Explaining Kansas City 'Smart City' Hype

A government trade mag diagram celebrates recent Kansas City tech advancement but still doesn't quite explain why it takes 6 months to get help from the 311 line. Take a look: How Kansas City, Mo.

It takes six months to get help from 311 because it's staffed with the hoodrats who figured out that working in fast food is a temporary job. Unfortunately they did not figure out that working the 311 line means that they're actually supposed to help people and not just collect a check.

Considering a tech system like this that in any way depends on the abilities, expertise, and management of KCMO government is like giving a super commuter to a giraffe.
This is an "organization" that can't repair streets, replace traffic signals with stop signs, can't run the 311 system, has ignored basic utilities for decades, and is incapable of providing neighborhoods with even a minimum of safety, as evidenced by over 110 homicides so far this year.
How the council, mayor, and employees can ignore those critical issues and at the same time play with this kind of crap is criminal.
And then ask for $800 million to fill an empty trough?
It gets sadder all the time.
