TKC BREAKING NEWS!!! COUNCIL RAGES AS ACCELERATED ORDINANCE THREATENS TO AUTHORIZE NO-BID BURNS & MAC NEW KANSAS CITY AIRPORT DEAL THIS WEEK!!!



Rather than wait for a legal review that was recently agreed upon, supporters for the new airport are pushing through a behind the scenes legislative maneuver to secure a controversial deal.

Take a look at this bit of nonsense on it's way through the T&I committee this week:

#170389: Authorizing the City Manager to execute a Memorandum of Understanding with Terminal Developer, LLC and Burns & McDonnell Engineering Company, Inc. for a terminal modernization project at the Kansas City International Airport; and recognizing this ordinance as having an accelerated effective date pursuant to Section 503(a)(3)(D) of the Charter.

The word according to Council:



"Take a look at the last ordinance in the agenda. This agenda is for this week!!!"

Sponsored by Mayor Sly & Council Lady Justus . . . Only the hopelessly naive would think that these power players would wait for outside firms to decide an issue worth billions of dollars.



And so . . .

BY WAY OF EMERGENCY ORDINANCE, THE BURNS & MAC NO-BID NEW AIRPORT DEAL IS ALREADY BACK ON THE TABLE WITHOUT LEGAL REVIEW!!!

And once again . . .

NOW MAYOR SLY THREATENS COUNCIL AND OPPONENTS TO SECURE A BILLION DOLLAR NO-BID DEAL FOR HIS CORPORATE PALS!!!

The money is too important to play around with politics. There's no pretense of being a "nice guy" here. The mayor needs a win here. Time to ask your council person for your biggest wish so that they can bring it to the mayor. This week is for horse trading TKC.

I fly KCI, guy said...

But isn't he going to wait for the neighborhood meetings that are planned?

Old Scotch & Rocks Sly James is leaving a legacy saturated drink coasters and back room deals that would make Boss Tom blush.

The deal wouldn't stand up to rigorous analysis, so the dronies are going to jam it through.

Polsinelli was pissed that they didn't get the $495,000 legal contract to rubber stamp this deal. (Husch is a St. Louis firm with an office here.)
so will Husch now bill for their one hour of work performed? New billing rate: $495,000 per hour x 1. Or they sue!

This looks horrible for the mayor. Why shouldn't we consider other options or the legality of the deal? Thank you for reporting this TKC.

Sky better sell the Plaza tennis courts... he will need the money to help pass this. But of course it won't pass.

Johnson County International Airport will be a reality before too long and the Legacy of the mayor will be the uptick in the body bag count.

Someone thank Rex for trying to help KC workers out by giving them a 1% raise and tell him we need help keeping this great KCI airport as-is. Houston Hobbybis smaller and everyone likes SW there.

Apparently, when Sly decided to pick a government to emulate, he decided on Venezuela.
No serious legal systems or courts to bother with.
A totally compliant legislature that does the executive's bidding.
And a public that is regularly ignored, even concerning the most important, expensive, and long-lasting public issues.
KCMO
World class!
Third World!

4:50--perfect!

To me, all these emergency ordinances reveal just how shaky these deals are, and how scared Sly James is.
Press on, everyone. This is the time when political hacks like Sly James make mistakes.
And let's not forget, he has other political ambitions. After all, Sly is just a renter here, 108 E. 30th St. on Union Hill. He might be hoping Cleaver will make a mistake, and then Sly would try to leapfrog to congress. So get him on the record, keep asking questions. Keep attending meetings--never ever ever ever give up.

As a crime refugee, now living in Johnson County, it pains me to watch KCMO fall apart like this. Sly has no idea what to do except chase the shiny objects--trolleys and terminals. And pretending that if we just paid untrained workers $15 an hour, THEN the city would work. Ha. Pretty soon, workers will be replaced by McRobots. Then the hoodrats will just ride the Toy Train from Power and Light to the Plaza. While Omaha and Des Moines and Ok City eclipse KCMO and KCI...sad.

Can S'lie be impeached? Why hasn't that happened yet?

If I were the lazy ass peckerwoods of KC I'd ponder maybe lifting my fat ass out of the chair and voting next time.

If you think that crime is only happening on the east side then you are sorely mistaken. It is happening all over the city. The east side just gets all the coverage because he doesn't want the media to tell or show whats really going on with the rest of the city. Smoke and mirrors baby, smoke and mirrors

Sly better duck and cover!

EVERYBODY needs to blow up the FBI phones. We are getting fucked by a CORRUPT mayor. This stinks like a slaughter house in August!

Upsets me because Kansas citians have repeatedly voted no. We like our airport. And I don't know about you, I don't go to an airport to hangout, pay extra high prices for "stuff" and meals. Just insane.
