TKC BREAKING NEWS!!! WALDO RESIDENTS ARGUE AGAINST SHOPPING CENTER CID & KANSAS CITY MAYORAL AMBITIONS OF COUNCIL DUDE SCOTT TAYLOR!!!
South Wornall has always been an eyesore and now its becoming one of the most blighted parts of Kansas City.
Accordingly, Wornall Village Shopping Center plans a $7-MILLION-RENNOVATION and wants City Hall to impose a Community Improvement District sales tax increase of 1% on all purchases in order to spruce up the dilapidated Price Chopper and possibly bring back something nicer than the shut down Church's Chicken.
Social media outrage has been swift and somewhat funny but now there's a new development . . .
OPPONENTS OF THE CID TARGET THE MAYORAL AMBITIONS OF COUNCIL DUDE SCOTT TAYLOR AS A TAX REBUKE!!!
In the midst of a mayoral campaign, the criticism is just a bit more important.
A few money quotes:
"If it's only going to raise $150,000. Why doesn't the councilman just write a check from his camapign donations?"
A worry about the future . . .
"This is one of Scott's worst ideas, I hate to think of the garbage that he's doing to come up with when if he stumbles into the mayor's office."
Risk reward . . .
"Can somebody tell Councilman Taylor that the taxes imposed on grocery store items are already too high and this is just going to increase the commute to shop somewhere more affordable."
As usual, this is Kansas City so the complaints go on and on and the idea to help build a better grocery store by way of taxpayer cash seems to be rejected by the public once again.
