TKC BREAKING AND EXCLUSIVE NEWS!!! KANSAS CITY FOUNTAIN PROTESTERS RECEIVE CITY HALL THREAT LETTER!!!
Peaceful neighborhood protest of declining Kansas City services has earned threats from City Hall according to AWESOME TKC TIPSTERS.
And this morning OUR TKC BLOG COMMUNITY can check the documentation to prove this claim.
Accordingly . . .
TAKE A LOOK AT KANSAS CITY RESIDENTS BESEECHING THE MAYOR FOR HELP WITH THEIR NEIGHBORHOOD FOUNTAIN ONLY TO BE MET WITH A STERN REBUKE FOR THEIR ACTIVISM FROM CITY HALL!!!
Look back, remember @ the outset of this year we reported that there's no City Hall money to pay for fountains . . . This situation will only get worse as the Summer rolls on . . . Now . . . Here's the story and from a dedicated resident enduring the wrath of City Hall bureaucracy . . .
Fountain at 6700 Wornall Road
The Armour Fields Homes Association (AFHA) today received a threatening letter from the city's public works department insisting that the AFHA remove the sign at the fountain located at 6700 Wornall Road. The sign was placed there several weeks ago by the AFHA board.
Late last year the AFHA was hit with a bill for over $800 representing several years worth of water to the fountain. The AFHA board has maintained this city owned fountain for years and all of the other city owned fountains and islands throughout our association. AFHA was told by the city that the fountain was owned by the association. AFHA knew this was not the case and met with City officials earlier this year. In that meeting the city reluctantly agreed that the fountain and islands are owned by the city but can not afford to maintain them. Translation: they won't maintain them. Sherry McIntyre went so far to threaten to have the fountain removed. AFHA believes that the city should shoulder some if not all of the fiscal responsibility for running the city. It has been dumping its responsibility onto its residents for years. The homes associations pay for island maintenance, snow removal from its streets, private security and many residents are forced to pay for private schools for their children due to the failure of the KCMPSD. We pay to have these things done with our taxes.
The sign needs to stay up until the city fulfills its obligation to properly maintain city assets.
