We Did It!!! Kansas City Sidewalk Repair Ordinance Passes Unanimously With The Help Of Our TKC Blog Community!!!
Our blog community followed this interesting bit of legislation from start to finish and this afternoon Council approved an ordinance that would task City Hall with paying for sidewalk repair instead of homeowners UNTIL the money runs out . . . Which may or may not be rather quickly.
Here's how it went down . . .
During the election, our blog community noted that this was only a promise and NOT PART OF BINDING BALLOT LANGUAGE.
Then, EXCLUSIVELY we reported the first effort FAILING among City Council with a surprising return trip back to committee . . .
Finally, we talked EXCLUSIVELY with Councilman Lucas who offered insight into the legislative process and ACCURATELY predicted a unanimous adoption.
Now the find print here is that the cash funding this ordinance isn't secured and could run out more quickly that most residents might like . . . But for the moment, we should call it a win and thank City Council AND OUR AWESOME TKC BLOG COMMUNITY for the victory
