Go Bond Waiting Game: Don't Hold Your Breath For New Kansas City Sidewalks



Just a quick note from a recent Kansas City P&Z meeting that our readers wanted us to take note of . . .

City Hall will be sending out inspectors to survey sites for new sidewalks because locals are confronting increasing demands to keep big promises that have yet to be fulfilled.

GO Bond Cash is dwindling quick and those new sidewalks will cost more. Curb & gutter fees will hit local neighborhoods who are going to have to raise some of their own cash for sidewalks in a somewhat new-ish "50/50 match" clause that anybody asking for new sidewalks.

Look for City Hall to attempt to develop a new(er) web app so locals can see when they'll get their new sidealks . . . Which should be never for anybody who doesn't live near downtown. Sorry.

Developing . . .

I thought property owners were responsible for the maintenance of sidewalks on their property.

How does the city handle lawsuits from people falling and getting hurt on bad sidewalks? Broken arms arent cheap.

The talk around this one was really strange.

Doesn't the city council watch movies?

Jolie says you should wait to be put into the matrix?

WTF?

Who would have guessed???
How about outsourcing the sidewalk project to Overland Park. Pay OP the money and let them do the work. How much more efficient would this solution be???

Failed sidewalks because of failed promises, about the use of go bond money, from a failed city.

If they can't build sidewalks, how are they going to build a new airport?

Crime is dropping everywhere except inside the White House where the waste, fraud, and abuse is rampant.

Trump is the best at something. Most corrupt ever.

You folks who voted for this crap need to suck it up. You fall for this every time, and you never learn. All you saw was flyers that said "I'm voting for this" with Sly's face on it, and you go all fuzzy like the wimps you are. Did you really think he was going to make good on this? His track record says NO, but you still fell for it.

The sad thing is, you will turn right around and do it again and again and again. You people don't have sense enough to pour piss out of a boot before you put it on. SUCKERS!

1:50: Property owners were responsible for sidewalk maintenance, but one of the promises made in order to get the GO bonds passed was the city would take over that maintenance and build new sidewalks.

Of course city promises and a few bucks will get you a latte at Starbucks.

KCMO voters are cucks that pay black dudes to assfuck their wives while they watch.

It is mainly your average, clueless SJW types who don’t own property and clueless inner city minorities who want ‘mo free stuff’ vote this crap in. Democrats, especially black democrats are capable destroying cities during their term in office quite easily. White flight is never good for any city. It’s going to get to the point where no one is going to be willing to live and work here. Detroit will soon have competition as worst city in the Midwest.
