TKC TOLD YOU SO!!! CITY HALL FORCED TO DOUBLE DOWN ON MORE TAXES TO FIX BROADWAY BUCK O'NEIL BRIDGE!!! HAS ANTI-TRUMP PARTISAN RHETORIC RUINED KANSAS CITY HOPE OF FED FUNDING????
At the end of last year a 1-cent sales tax "renewal" was quietly put on the ballot in order to keep the Broadway Buck O'Neil bridge from closing and causing most Northland residents to secede from KCMO.
Real talk that nobody else is allowed to report: This is a tax INCREASE because very little of the cash will go to Public Improvements Advisory Committee (PIAC) - Because they've been looted for years by the Streetcar and a litany of pet projects.
Even better . . .
KANSAS CITY'S LAST HOPE OF TIGER GRANT FED FUNDING IS THE HIGHLY TOUTED INFRASTRUCTURE BILL BY PREZ TRUMP!!! BUT HAS DIVISIVE RHETORIC FROM LOCAL POLITICOS RUINED THIS TOWN'S ODDS OF GETTING OUR SHARE OF THAT MONEY?!?!
In the meantime . . . Here's a glimpse at the future for Northland commuters or anybody who needs to quickly visit the nicer part of town:
- GO BOND CASH is quickly disappearing and Council doesn't want to "waste it" on Northland drivers.
- KCMO is always last on the list for Missouri politicos and a locally based attack on Guv Greitens isn't helping the case for MoDOT improvement.
- Election season quickly approaching will keep KC politicos from enthusiastically pushing even more taxes . . .
