Doesn't surprise me, I got an estimated bill that was close to normal on an empty house, and my next bill was zero. He needs to get a lawyer!!

Where is the Star puff piece on the wonderful benefit of the $12 million-dollar, Chicago, no bid contract to improve customer service in the Water Department. No changes or improvements were ever proclaimed by any of the media.
What did happen is that a flood of mailings began coming from Chicago and other locales wanting every KCMO property owner to buy water line insurance from a private company. The last several years the letters have been official looking letters from the City Manager. Why was Troy Schulte promoting private insurance? Only conclusion is that the $12 million was used to setup private companies to sell this insurance. Who are the silent partner/owners of this for- profit company?

Not only storm water flows from JoCo to KCMO in Brush Creek. Killa City taxpayers can take pride that they provide sewer services to much of Mission Hills and Leawood at discounted rates while Killa City rates skyrocket.
KCMO residents water rates have gone up 88%, while thirty other towns and villages that buy water from KCMO have only experienced a 38% increase.
How much are sewer service rates for Mission Hills and Leawood, KS, that KCMO provides? Certainly much less than for KCMO property owners. The JoCo Developers who control Slie are entitled to subsidies for their efforts to bankrupt Killa City.
