Winter can be tough in Kansas City and snowfall is to be expected.
However . . .
AFTER NEARLY EIGHT YEARS MAYOR SLY JAMES AND CITY MANAGER TROY SCHULTE HAVE FAILED TO MAKE EVEN A SINGLE IMPROVEMENT IN HOW KANSAS CITY CLEANS STREETS AFTER SNOWFALL!!!
Seriously, KCMO streets are dangerous and the problem isn't any kind of unusual weather but merely that City Hall leadership has been more focused on development subsidy than something as simple as improving snow removal.
Examples . . .
- The tech to monitor snow plows, that was actually implemented by Mayor Funkhouser.
- KCMO Neighborhood streets are nearly impassible this morning and residents without a truck are better off just staying at home today.
- Main arteries downtown are passable but everything else run by KCMO is a snowy field of hot garbage.
And so . . . We ask this open question . . .
WHAT HAS MAYOR SLY DONE TO IMPROVE SNOW REMOVAL DURING HIS TENURE GIVEN CONSISTENT COMPLAINTS?!?!
I'll wait for the answer.
Meanwhile, JoCo has just as many streets and many different municipalities with smaller budgets but manages to keep their roads in much better condition than KC Proper given that our 12th & Oak leadership crew who love playing amateur developer with other people's money.
Check the updated weather links, please stay safe . . .
