TKC EXCLUSIVE AND BREAKING NEWS!!! KANSAS CITY TAX FIGHTERS RAGE AGAINST MORE CITY HALL CASH FOR STALLED DOWNTOWN CONVENTION HOTEL!!!
The fate of the Downtown Kansas City Convention Hotel is up for debate again the public slap fight couldn't come at a worse time for proponents of Mayor Sly's taxpayer subsidized development agenda.
Remember that OUR KICK-ASS TKC BLOG COMMUNITY warned of a hotel extension and more cash for this project back in September.
And now Kansas City tax fighters are pestering City Hall about broken promises as City Hall would rather focus on the upcoming airport vote.
To wit . . .
CHECK THIS KICK-ASS KANSAS CITY TAX FIGHTER MEMO EXPOSING THE DOWNTOWN CONVENTION HOTEL PIPE DREAM!!!
Here's the word:
City Council Members, Planning, Zoning and EDC Committee . . .
All of us have been lied to over and over again by the mayor, the city manager, the developer and his attorney. For two years you and the Kansas City voters were told . . . There were contracts and financing in place to proceed with the project. The mayor and the city manager, who are supposed to represent the voters, both stated they had seen the financing plans and they were adequate . . .
A short time back, HYATT Corporation related to CFRG there were never any contracts with KC Hotel Developers LLC and the financing was mostly Hyatt financiers money. Now Loew’s has taken HYATT's place . . . Have you seen any contracts, financing arrangements, etc.? These guys are asking for $168,000,000 of our taxpayer financing and it is your job to see the taxpayers are protected. We’re concerned the taxpayers will end up holding the bag for this fiasco . . .
This fact check poised to City Hall is over a bit of pending legislation and a revised proposal for a project that promised a Spring groundbreaking for 2017 that was delayed.
Meanwhile, have assured locals that the project will be completed by 2020.
You decide . . .
