SHOCK!!! NEW KCI SINGLE-TERMINAL AIRPORT BECOMING BIGGEST FINANCIAL DISASTER IN KANSAS CITY HISTORY!!!
In response to our blog community FIRST NEWS about the airport deal falling apart, City Hall has been busy putting low-rent guarantees on blast in order to calm voters and a cadre of local contractors and lawyers depending on this deal.
A real talk summary of where KCMO stands . . .
- Despite cheap politico promises that no cash from the KCMO general fund is being used, LOOK CLOSER AND SEE the the city has already forked over $20-million and will soon need to re-up.
- Edgemoor is struggling desperately to hold onto this deal and if they don't get all of the airlines on board in a few weeks, they'll lose billions.
- The Use and Lease Agreement remains unsigned, until that happens, everything else we hear is just spin, hype and corporate deception.
