TKC EXCLUSIVE!!! CITY HALL DEMANDS KANSAS CITY SILENCE ON $90-MILLION EMERGENCY SHORT TERM LOAN FOR NEW SINGLE-TERMINAL AIRPORT AS PROMISED LEASE AGREEMENT DEADLINE BROKEN!!!
An important recap about an EPIC payout coming soon and hopefully under the radar of most voters . . .
"A financial discussion regarding the user agreement and the new term sheet for the Airport project gets pushed off . . . Meanwhile, the Airport committee endorses (5-1) an ordinance that obligates the City to come up with $90-million. It would seem to me that the order should be in reverse."
Even better . . .
Here's the punch line . . .
Supporters of this rushed cash argue that the airlines have agreed to pay KCMO back. BUT neither the user agreement nor the term sheet have been signed by a majority of airlines. City Hall promised the agreements would be delivered on the 25th but that deadline passed and there are only a minority of airlines that have agreed to sign on the pricey terms . . . So far BIG CARRIER bullying FAILED to inspire fear in other other airlines. Local newsies other than the newspaper asking for info have been threatened with limited access for any non-official update that doesn't include presser comment from City Hall.
Remember . . .
From The Associated Press: "Aviation Director Pat Klein said he expected six of the eight airlines that serve KCI to sign the agreement by Feb. 25."
To wit . . .
TKC EXCLUSIVE TOLD YOU SO!!! IT'S THE 26TH AND KANSAS CITY DOESN'T HAVE THE AIRLINE SIGNATURES BUT RUSHES TO GIVE AWAY 90-MILLION BUCKS!!!
And so . . .
NEWSIES WHO WANTED TO REPORT THIS FACT HAVE BEEN THREATENED TO HAVE THEIR MEDIA ACCESS REVOKED!!!
Because TKC breaks news and wind in the general direction of City Hall approved access . . . We offer this report FIRST because no other local outlet can.
