TKC BREAKING NEWS!!! CITY HALL FUNDING MASSIVE DOWNTOWN KANSAS CITY PARKING TICKET CRACKDOWN!!!
The 12th & Oak war on motorists escalates in 2018 with big bucks transferred to target parking offenders.
Here's a look at pending legislation . . .
Ordinance #180061: Reducing appropriations in the Downtown Parking Control account of the Public Works Department by $145,000.00; transferring the same amount to the Kansas City Police Department; and appropriating the same amount to the Downtown Parking account in order to enhance downtown parking control and enforcement.
Highlights of the costly effort . . .
- Targeting motorists along the streetcar route and clearing cars that have consistently slowed down the toy train.
- Authorizing and outsourcing with a third party contractor to enforce parking rules inside the loop.
- Hiring ten more KCPD parking control officers.
This is important for a lot of reasons but mostly this one . . .
WHILE THE LATEST KANSAS CITY MURDER SPIKE DIDN'T EARN ANY LEGISLATIVE ACTION FROM CITY HALL, CLEANING UP DOWNTOWN PARKING GARNERS CASH AND RESOURCES FROM MAYOR & COUNCIL!!!
To make matters worse, so far we've seen a great deal of this parking enforcement targeting small biz and workers trying to eke out a living in the midst of fragile developer schemes that blame typical Downtown traffic for their limited success.
