Cash For Kansas City Police Salaries Delayed

Our blog community was FIRST to note a move to find ONE MILLION BUCKS for police salaries . . . Sadly, that effort has been struck down for the moment with a few surprises on the way:

Bid to increase Kansas City's raise to police salaries put on hold

City Councilwoman Heather Hall believes she can help Kansas City's budgeters secure an additional $1.7 million to boost the city's controversial raise in police salaries. But the city's Finance and Governance Committee determined Wednesday it wants more time to ponder details in her proposition that the funds could be secured by consolidating some city and police functions.

Hey Hundley @ 7:10, you also know how to play the game bro. Its just that the white folk arent corrupt like your posse iz.

This mentality from "that" community is why forte got away with this. I'll save my laughter for the next pointless candlelight vigil for a slain "honor student."

What about the layoffs at city hall? Police aren't the only ones who provide essential service. Layoffs are happenig but hidden by Sly & Troy so the GO bonds pass. Lots of people are losing their jobs next month. None are PD of FD, just workers with no union. its not fair

Hope they give substantial raises to Louie's FD.
They risk their lives every day. Same for the Police.
They all should be making $100,000.00 a year... plus overtime.
Heroes.

KC is in sorry shape.
The Dems have run it into the ground with all their "feel good" handouts.
It's finally catching up to them.

If the 123 GO Bonds don't pass, the Citizens of KC had better hold on tight because a tsunami is comming.

City employees do have a union, in fact they're required to join it and pay dues...however they get very little in return as far as representation and assistance. I agree it's not fair or right to pay out money and get nothing in return. But city taxpayers see that all the time.

Not all city employees have a union. Only the labor class employees are represented. The salaried employees do not have a union, and they get screwed in the layoffs every year and when it comes to raises. Labor employees can't be touched this year, only the salaried ones. Thanks to the Fire Department's $10M in fake overtime... there's no money, so other departments have to layoff people.
