TKC BREAKING NEWS!!! EPIC KANSAS CITY 18TH & VINE $10 MILLION GIFT FROM TAXPAYERS MOVES FORWARD!!!
The last week of City Council holds more a few hidden surprises and this is the biggest scam by far that's moving along under the radar . . .
THE FINANCE COMMITTEE JUST APPROVED AN EXCEPTIONALLY SKETCHY $10-MILLION PLAN FOR THE STRUGGLING 18TH & VINE JAZZ DISTRICT!!!
A few things to consider . . .
During the Summer there were a spate of deadly shootings in the district that still isn't profitable.
Kansas City has spent $100 million since 1990 trying to revive this district and so far nothing works.
And worst of all . . .
THIS SHADY NEW PLAN WILL LOOT AT LEAST $3-MILLION FROM 3RD DISTRICT PIAC FUNDS TO PAY FOR THIS BOOZY MONEY LOSING JAZZ PLAYGROUND!!!
And so important neighborhood improvements will suffer so locals can brag about an attraction that has never garnered much of an audience and continues to draw away resources from people who need them most.
What's worse is that even tax & spend supporters admit there wasn't much community input into the scheme that simply extorts cash from City Hall with no end in sight.
The biggest punchline here is that the plan will allow the district to beg for fed cash (unlikely) and steal funds from other neighborhood organizations as well.
It comes up for a full vote from the Council tomorrow.
