TKC BREAKING AND EXCLUSIVE NEWS!!! FIRST LOOK AT BURNS & McDONNELL NEW KANSAS CITY AIRPORT NO-BID PITCH!!!



Right now, we invite our blog community to take a peek at DOX behind the scenes of the current new airport debate . . .

Once again for the cheap seats . . .

THIS TIME AROUND THE KANSAS CITY AIRPORT DEBATE ISN'T ABOUT THE MERITS OF A NEW FACILITY BUT THE CORRUPT AND DISGRACEFUL NO-BID TACTICS USED BY MAYOR SLY TO PUSH THROUGH THIS PLAN AFTER BETRAYING HIS VOTE FOR LEGAL REVIEW!!!

To be fair . . .

HERE'S FIRST LOOK AT THE EXCEPTIONAL PITCH FROM BURNS & MAC!!! SADLY, NO OTHER FIRMS HAVE BEEN INVITED OR ALLOWED TO COMPETE THANKS TO MAYOR SLY'S DESPICABLE NO-BID PLAN!!!



For all of the public meetings and two-faced talk about transparency . . . This document was only available until to Council . . . Until now . . .

THANKS TO THE MOST BAD-ASS TKC TIPSTERS, WE'RE SHARING THE BURNS & MAC PITCH WITH OUR BLOG COMMUNITY FIRST!!!

The message intercepted earlier today . . .

#############
Council Members:

Please see the attached document per our discussion regarding the qualifications question last week. If you need any further information please do not hesitate to contact me.

Thank you for your time and questions,

Mike Talboy

Again, the PDF is clean, the qualifications are impressive BUT THE NO-BID TACTICS OF MAYOR SLY AND HIS CORPORATE PALS ARE DECEITFUL AND NOT IN THE BEST INTERESTS OF KANSAS CITY VOTERS.

That's the opinion of our blog community . . . But, as always, take a look at the documents and decide for yourself FIRST ON TKC.

For all the money they'll be getting fro this. They should be paying Kansas City voters for this privilege.

That doesn't look more convenient than the current set up at all.

Question: what happens to the 500,000 has already committed to the legal review? If we're just going to go ahead and pass this thing tomorrow for a vote anyway?

Partnership with a friendly government. Looking for a man who wants to be Mayor and having the cash to make it possible. TKC, we're bigger than U.S. Steel.

Businesses get proposals from multiple purveyors. Kansas City should too.

Once the lawyers get into the financial structure details, this thing starts sputtering. Watch.

Shame that our city has come to this: 3rd rate deals rushed through without any public input or help choosing a design.

We know that Slie is as crooked as a dog's hind leg and we now know that the city council is as well. Don't call the women on the council "ladies", that's an insult to the female gender. They are barely women. How much is Slie, the obese bow tie making off this no bid contract with Burns & Mac? How much is the council making off it?

Why were there only 2 public meetings for the new and improved airport? What are the elected officials trying to hide? Why was there an "emergency" ordinance for the no bid for the airport? Why is there also an emergency ordinance for the sewers that have no bid from Burns & Mac?

The council and Slie need to be tossed out on their collective fat arses. Everything NOT up to date in Kansas City.

Recall of Sly is the only way to stop this garbage for good aND make sure he doesn't end up in D.C.

it's a bamboozle job from the word go. They're counting on Kansas Citians to be their usual apathetic selves and not get in the way of the get-rich-quick scheme for engineers and polticians. With a little careful procedural flim-flam, they've mad it all but impossible for citizens to have any meaningful input.

Consider also that KCMO is mostly people who can seldom, if ever, afford air travel. The main customer base for KCI and any successor operation is NOT people from KCMO. People from all surrounding counties up to 200 miles away are the customer base. A huge percentage of them aren't even in Missouri. Who cares what all these people think? Absolutely nobody in KCMO.

All this poor layout needs is for one plane to break down as it's leaving in one of the two u shaped sections and it will shut down multiple planes trying to leave, mayor slimeball your comment about why kci was built in the first place was wrong, it was built because the downtown airport was too small for bigger planes and it's a dangerous airport for the bigger planes also there was a noise constraint because of the multi engine planes. It was built Up north because there wasn't anything around at the time that the noise would bother and the land was cheap

This is the document that convinced our leaders to go with B&M? Wow - I think a high school class could have done a better job. As for the design - same old, same old.

Someone asks about other ideas being submitted. Well, there were a couple, but the consultant told the city that the airlines didn't like them, so we weren't even given the chance to see them. Who paid the consultant? The airlines? Doubtful. The City?

The airlines don't care about the inside of the airport. They pull their planes in, unload and load passengers, and then get the hell out of KC. As long as the airport provides them with what they need to do that, it's unimportant whether we have shopping and fine dining.

Why is the FBI not all over this?! Clear corruption. Giving no bid billion dollar deals to 6 figure contributors? you kidding me here? I guess they are to busy chasing BS and wont actually look into real stuff.

Would you hire a contractor to build you a new home who has never built a house from the ground up? B$M has never built an airport from the ground up.

10:08 has it right, it is corporate corruption at its highest, and it is the norm, clear back to Burns and Mac deciding the chambers priorities, despite public interest otherwise, then we go on to the "sponsorship" of the council election education, how does that not strike people as wrong.

Then the BS artists give Don Hall Jr man of the year to get him behind Burns and Mac effort, probably locked in a union or two with promises of participation.

There should have been a competition of firms, for new and remodeled, and see what the options are. To say this was the priority of our times, by the way, autonomous vehicles will change the parking, configuration, how you get to the airport, and Burns and Mac design is clueless in engaging that near term real transformation, which we are not seeing in this city because of the Mindshare sucking Streetcar that has KC as a mediocre non player in one of the biggest innovations of our time.

Boycott any business associated with this ram job. Never look at the BS artists the same again. Want to talk about a Rockhurst fix, Sly, Reardon, Graves, Mark 1.

If the interests of Kansas don't weigh in, what the hell.
