SHAME!!! KANSAS CITY FOUNTAINS REPLACED BY RAIN GARDENS!!!



Here's a bit of bad news from our blog community and a trend that features our city's moniker in decline.

To wit . . .

A GROWING NUMBER OF KANSAS CITY FOUNTAINS ARE BEING SHUT DOWN AND TURNED INTO RAIN GARDENS GIVEN DECLINING FUNDS FOR MAINTENANCE AND THE GROWING EMPHASIS ON CONSERVATION!!!

Tongue in cheek analysis from our blog community . . .

"You know what they say about horticulture, "you can lead a whore to culture but you can't make em' think". That is wrong on so many levels. But now that we're on the subject of Country Club Plaza . . . What's up with the shrubs planted in the fountain?"



The answer is simple and we've reported this one for the past the past two years . . .

There's not enough money to maintain these structures and Kansas City is no longer the city of fountains thanks to budget constrains.

Developing . . .

Evidently you can have TIFs and other special tax giveaways or fountains. But not both.

This is easy.
Instead of the City of Fountains it is now
The City of Fish Tanks.

On Sly's watch and just watch the toy train go... right along with the murder rate.

The Post Victorians are in flower pots now. Its an end of an era is all. They're finally monument now that they're in decay.

Tax Payers move out in the face of violence and city administrations where blacks are elected by way of the color of their skin to jobs that they are in no way qualified to work.

The erosion of the tax base, is concomitant with the liberalization of local government.

Next up, $800,000.00 down the Democrat Shitter.

The City of Fountains Foundation (non-profit).

Maybe the public at-large can help?

We need to adjust that PR phrase to read, "If Paris was a ghetto it would be just like KC in the Plains".

They've been rioting in Paris for 10 days because 4 cops raped a black man with a steel baton. Of course the liberal media didn't report that.
