TKC BREAKING AND EXCLUSIVE NEWS!!! SLAPDASH BURNS & MAC BASICALLY BLEW NEW AIRPORT BIDDING AS LAWSUITS THREATEN BUSTED PROCESS!!!
The mood of Burns & Mac Execs, Mayor Sly and City Manager's office has been exceptionally sullen this week and Burns & Mac bungled a bid on what is the biggest municipal project Kansas City has undertaken in the modern era.
To wit . . .
COMPETITORS ARE MAKING SUBTLE LEGAL THREATS AGAINST KANSAS CITY OVER NON-COMPETITIVE PRACTICES IN FAVOR OF AN EXCEPTIONALLY SLOPPY BURNS & MAC BID!!!
Behind the scenes, their B&M cost comparison financial deets were so sloppy that they're basically being thrown out . . . Which makes their bid pretty much incomplete and a lot more amateur than what their competitors have put together.
The rigged bid attempt that started this nightmare was really as far as they throught this thing through and they were easily outmaneuvered by a Council coalition that didn't take the Mayor's marching orders.
And so, this brings us to the sordid subject of a vote . . .
At this point it's clear Burns & Mac and George Brett haven't created any political momentum . . .
So this thing can go a variety of ways . . .
Calling off the vote is the only real option to give Burns & Mac another legitimate chance.
The vague ballot language preview gives City Hall insiders more time to help B&M get back on its feet in a far more suspect manner.
And once again, the bidding on the airport has crashed and burned and might have drawn KC into another crisis that erodes the public's trust in local Democracy.
Either way . . . This town's civic elite still hope to hand this thing over to the "hometown team" despite the threat of a crooked process that could scare voters away from the monstrosity that would be built out of all this corruption.
