TKC EXCLUSIVE!!! WALDO OUTCRY AGAINST KANSAS CITY ENGINEERING COMPANY IGNORED BY CITY HALL AS LOCAL STREETS ARE DESTROYED!!!
A few inches of snow sends KCMO streets into disarray as weather warnings have been removed but travel is still tough going . . . And so one street hot mess leads us to the next . . .
WALDO CRITICISM RESONATES THROUGHOUT KANSAS CITY AS NEIGHBORS ARGUE AGAINST HAPHAZARD STREET & PROPERTY DESTRUCTION NEGLECTED BY 12TH & OAK!!!
Right now we feature testimony sent our way that matches up with a great deal of social media complaints.
And what we want to focus on isn't calling out the many construction companies working in Waldo but rather the COMPLETE LACK OF COMMUNICATION WITH NEIGHBORS BY CITY HALL which has sparked this outcry.
Here's the word . . .
"I have complained multiple times on 311, and multiple times with Blue Nile directly. I am appalled at the workmanship and the lack of concern for Waldo residents.
They have destroyed our yard, our driveway, several trees, and our ability to enjoy the Trolley Trail. Everything has been covered in mud and/or washed away from erosion. Jobs were started and never finished. The rain collecting drains that they installed on our street do not even make sense with the natural flow of rain water. They have said that was the plan...nothing they can do to mediate things unless the city pays for it.
During their digging on our street alone, they broke the gas main THREE times and the water main once. Our property was flooded during that break. Our property continues to flood when it rains. What is happening with this company!? I am ready to move away from my home and my neighborhood...yes, it has affected all of us greatly. And for what?? On our street, the work they’ve done has been a detriment rather than an improvement. THIS DOES NOT SEEM RIGHT. Help."
