TKC BREAKING AND EXCLUSIVE NEWS!!! FIGHT AGAINST KANSAS CITY AIRPORT NO-BID BURNS & McDONNELL SINGLE-TERMINAL SCHEME TAKES OFF!!!
City Hall meetings start to get serious this week as a $2.5 BILLION corporate giveaway threatens the future of Kansas City.
To wit . . .
SET A COURSE FOR INTENSE DEBATE AS KANSAS CITY AIRPORT TAKES OFF!!!
PR coverage and a great deal of corporate hype are pushing the plan to hand over the airport to one of the biggest companies in town . . .
Here is their reasoning "A privately financed airport terminal. KCI airport would receive financing through private investment, paid for by airport usage fees, with no funds coming from the City's general fund, new taxes, or existing bonds."
Take a look at a promo clip for this effort produced with local taxpayer money:
The run-up to the debate has seen Mayor Sly making threats, forgoing community discussion that was promised and basically playing pitch man for some of his biggest campaign donors . . .
A glimmer of hope . . .
KANSAS CITY TAX FIGHTERS PLAN PROTEST AGAINST THE NO-BID CORPORATE AIRPORT PLAN!!!
Here's the bulletin sent out locals today . . .
"Do you like the convenience and flexibility of KCI?? Then here’s your chance to give City Hall your opinion. Tomorrow The Mayor and selected City Council Members will begin to push the Burns & McDonnell single terminal plan. The effort to rush this by council members is troubling. I would hope the council would protect themselves and ask for a more thought out approach where there is time for questions and perhaps opposing presentations. As far as we no there is no plan just a push. If you are able to attend tomorrows meeting, please do so. If not please call your council person and share your concerns with them."
