I don't understand what the problem is. This is best run and maintained city in the U.S. so put your I Love CK pride shirt on and enjoy the amenities. I got it under control. Relax!

KC is better then ever! Most popular Mayor in KC History. Trust in local government at record approval rates. Feel the love!

What are all the TV news people complaining about? The roads in KC are fine if you can avoid the thousands of potholes and not slide on the ice. City government is doing everything they can to make KCMO a vibrant progressive town. Instead of all the complaining on this worthless blog people need to come to meetings with solutions.

Pre treating is very expensive and could turn into a huge waste of material if the weather event does not happen. You pussies need to stop whining so much.

There was 1 KDOT truck at 0200hrs Southbound on I-35 running the left median throwing no salt no sand. That's all I seen tonight. For the record there was no MODOT TRUCKS out.. would really like to know whose decision it was not to put the equipment out. Does anyone remember when they bragged about the road sensors that could detect below-freezing temperatures on the roads? Remember how they said with these new items they could get out before the road got below freezing temperatures and safely treat the roads. What the hell happened to it!

The momentum is real!

@10:27 You are definitely correct and I thank you very much. I was in a hurry as I had to attend meetings about the airport, fair weather toy train and pre-K scams. Now a quick lunch before attending a meeting about the green plans affect on the airport scam. There are so many scams I cannot keep them straight. I get so triggered when people create road blocks that hinders our momentum. It would be so much easier if everybody went along with the scams. Feel better now that I get this out of my system.
