SWITCHEROO!!! AMID TOUGH TALK THREATS COUNCIL APPROVES EDGEMOOR MOU FOR DOOMED #BETTERKCI NEW AIRPORT!!!
At the ZERO HOUR the Council switched gears and gave into corporate pressure and quite a bit of bullying. And so, the new airport is one step closer to construction after contentious debate.
Behind the scenes . . .
THIS SHAKY DEAL ISN'T QUITE DONE GIVEN A SERIES OF THREATS TOWARD COUNCIL AND HARD FEELINGS AMID THE BIDDING PROCESS!!!
The sweetheart deal actually just puts KCMO on the hook for $30-million trial run because most newsies haven't read the fine print. Remember that there's still background labor negotiations that still threaten to bring this deal crashing down.
