TKC BREAKING NEWS!!! COUNCIL RAGES AS ACCELERATED ORDINANCE THREATENS TO AUTHORIZE NO-BID BURNS & MAC NEW KANSAS CITY AIRPORT DEAL THIS WEEK!!!
Rather than wait for a legal review that was recently agreed upon, supporters for the new airport are pushing through a behind the scenes legislative maneuver to secure a controversial deal.
Take a look at this bit of nonsense on it's way through the T&I committee this week:
#170389: Authorizing the City Manager to execute a Memorandum of Understanding with Terminal Developer, LLC and Burns & McDonnell Engineering Company, Inc. for a terminal modernization project at the Kansas City International Airport; and recognizing this ordinance as having an accelerated effective date pursuant to Section 503(a)(3)(D) of the Charter.
The word according to Council:
"Take a look at the last ordinance in the agenda. This agenda is for this week!!!"
Sponsored by Mayor Sly & Council Lady Justus . . . Only the hopelessly naive would think that these power players would wait for outside firms to decide an issue worth billions of dollars.
And so . . .
BY WAY OF EMERGENCY ORDINANCE, THE BURNS & MAC NO-BID NEW AIRPORT DEAL IS ALREADY BACK ON THE TABLE WITHOUT LEGAL REVIEW!!!
And once again . . .
NOW MAYOR SLY THREATENS COUNCIL AND OPPONENTS TO SECURE A BILLION DOLLAR NO-BID DEAL FOR HIS CORPORATE PALS!!!
