Kansas City looking to outsource parking enforcement downtown

plans are underway to seek a vendor for parking enforcement inside the streetcar TDD. current enforcement is exclusively KCPD and is not going well.

There is absolutely no reason to go downtown, that is, unless you are one of the unlucky people to have to work in that shithole.

I do not even consider going to a concert, movie or any event that charges admission. When you pay the outrageous price of admission you also seem to give permission to be screwed around and overcharged for everything evolved. The price to park, food, drink and anything else you buy. Screw the vendors, the venues and the city, stay home.

I don't worry about parking. I park at 3rd & Grand and use the MAX or Street Car.

I do work here and it is a shithole. Homeless and sketch people all over.

My favorite memories of this past summer is the homeless "swimming" in front of City Hall and the homeless sleeping in a doorway within feet of City Hall.

Parking is not a problem- why else would they think they could put 30,000 KC Royals’ fans downtown when Troy forces them to move?
Fans don’t deserve the convenience they now enjoy and the Chiefs’ fans can move downtown also. No one will mind walking several miles nor will they mind added taxes... I‎t can all be done for free like the new airport...free.
Think of all the money that will be saved by having $700 Parking tickets and add-on fees of $22 per ticket for any event. The city can have a vendor company charge bystanders $8 for walking on the sidewalks. Since most online venues charge convenience fees- that is what these will called.
KC! What a great place with great leaders and such great visionaries!
