Kansas City Dead Tree Media Money Talk
Amid a plea for more taxes from broke-ass residents and continued budget frustration . . .
Quick roundup of the newspaper reporting on City Hall financial matters . . .
Of course there's rage over 1st Responder pay that overlooks how much City Hall is giving away to so many local suits via taxpayer subsidy and assorted development largess . . .
Take a look:
A Kansas City firefighter made $232,000 last year (more than the city manager)
KC budget provides police, fire raises even as many already make more than $100,000
Driving nightmares spur Kansas City plea for taxpayers’ help undoing backlog of road repairs
City Council should move on wage hike
And now the sordid topic of (taxpayer) coin confronts our local politicos amid an upcoming election, even more levies planned after that and big money transit issues also on the table . . .
You decide . . .
