Volker residents deal with raw sewage in their homes

KANSAS CITY, Mo. - The city is now involved in a case where some folks in the Volker neighborhood feel like they're living in a port-a-potty. You can smell the stench before even stepping into Joan Maxwell's basement. "If there's a big rainstorm, the entire basement will flood and it's a mixture of sewage and rainwater," Maxwell told 41 Action News Tuesday.

Supposedly the voters handed the City a blank check when the voted for the GO Bonds. Did anyone actually expect the City to fix anything? Ha....

Wait, it’s private sewer lines? How is it the city’s fault?

I bet 50-1 that lard ass Troy would say "well you should have bought the sewar insurance".

Sounds to me like people in Volker eat too much meat. Remember in KCMO, too many poos, we all lose.

Try a street smell at 42 and Genessee. Must be an air relief valve that is permanently open. Can smell 24/7. Been there for years.

Private lines meant the builder/developer wasn't going to install the sewer to any accepted standard (American Public Works Associate) in KC. The City then will not take responsibility for the sewer, as well they shouldn't. I like what the City's solution was though, do the work the lien the Owner(s).
