KANSAS CITY LIBRARY LEVY WINS BUT DID CROSBY KEMPER III LOSE HIS RIGHT TO COMPLAIN ABOUT HIGH TAXES?!?!?
Local homeless will now earn even more luxurious accommodations thanks to Kansas City taxpayers following voter approval last night.
Kansas City Library levy increase passes
Providing an additional $2.8 million to the library system annually. This “yes” vote increases the library’s property tax-based operating levy by 8 cents, its first raise in 22 years . . . For a home valued at $75,000, the increase will carry an extra cost of 95 cents per month, or $11.40 each year. For a home valued at $200,000, this cost rises to $2.53 monthly and $30.36 annually.
It's not much in order to provide hobos a clean & safe place to make BM and store thousands upon thousands of books that are also readily available to anybody with a smartphone.
Nevertheless . . .
IS THE KANSAS CITY TAX FIGHTER FORTUNATE SON NOW A TAX HYPOCRITE GIVEN THAT HIS LIBRARY FEEDS AT THE SAME TROUGH???
It's doubtful there will be any defense that would argue a book and hobo warehouse trumps job creation which other tax break beneficiaries claim they bolster. Like most Kansas City hypocrisies, the politically inconvenient fact will likely remain politely unmentioned by the mainstream.
You decide . . .
