TKC EXCLUSIVE!!! KANSAS CITY CORPORATE SINGLE-TERMINAL AIRPORT ORDINANCE DOUBLE TROUBLE EXPLAINED!!!
Here's a real world look at the flight plan for the seemingly unavoidable KANSAS CITY SINGLE-TERMINAL CORPORATE AIRPORT CRASH COURSE . . .
The Citizens For Responsible Government do a nice job of explaining the sitch and the difference betwixt one money grab vs. the next in their latest blast.
Jamming the SINGLE TERMINAL down our throats!
Below are two ordinances being considered this week at City Hall.. I am sorry for the "whack-a-mole" approach but these senseless introductions continue to come out of nowhere. IF EITHER ONE OF THESE PASSES, YOU’LL BE STUCK WITH A SINGLE TERMINAL. YOU WILL HAVE NO IDEA OF WHAT IT WILL LOOK LIKE OR THE QUALITY OF THE PROJECT.
107523 - This is Jolie Justus’s attempt to jam through the Burns & McDonnell single terminal plan. If you vote for this ordinance, you will approve a SINGLE TERMINAL, without any kind of a plan. Plus you will also approve PRIVATE FINANCING Only without any consideration for Aviation Bonds to be used. This will dramatically drive up all costs associated with the airport.
170439 - This ordinance is sponsored by Katherine Shields. Neither Justus nor Shields has anyone else sponsoring their respective ordinances. Perhaps there isn’t much support on the council. 170439 will again limit construction to a single terminal but use aviation bonds to finance. Aviations bonds would be cheaper. What about a proposal that doesn’t limit the construction to a single terminal? As you can see, there is no need to be wasting any time on either of these proposals. Why don’t we wait till we have a plan for the voters to approve and then figure out how to finance it? Maybe it will be a remodel plan!
Please call the council members and tell them to stop these two worthless ordinances in committee. This is embarrassing for them to ask the voters to approve something we can’t see or touch. It’s simply a trick to get the single terminal plan approved. Call them and then plan to vote NO-vember if things don’t change!
