KCMO's aging infrastructure is costing taxpayers

Apparently, from their own spokesperson's statements, the Water Department doesn't have a clue what's causing the problem.

I would suggest an independent audit (State Auditor's Office?) comparing the amounts spent on infrastructure maintenance compared to that spent on increases to Managerial salaries, perquisites and travel expenses might give us a clue.

Then stop this airport crap and take care of what matters in the city! The streets around the city are terrible.

^^No. We'll do the airport first. Next, you don't drive and haven't for years, so you have no idea what shape the streets are in in geezer.
