TKC EXCLUSIVE!!! JACKSON COUNTY EXEC FRANK WHITE M.I.A. AMID COURTHOUSE WATER MAIN BREAK DEVASTATION!!!
Insider word from The Courthouse offers perspective on a recent disaster not yet reported in local media . . .
THE WATER MAIN BREAK INSIDE THE COURTHOUSE IS DOING UNTOLD DAMAGE TO THE OLD SCHOOL JACKSON COUNTY BUILDING AND HAS CAUSED CHAOS FOR THIS BRANCH OF LOCAL GOVERNMENT!!!
Highlights . . .
- The plan to have downtown workers move to the Independence, MO courthouse was an unmitigated DISASTER. Most of the workers need to be plugged in to their resources at the Downtown location. There weren't enough desks or space for the shift and no real work was accomplished.
- The repairs have been directionless. Workers are struggling to coordinate their efforts and so far Team Frank hasn't taken the lead.
- The damage is far reaching, the building is UNSAFE now. This will impact court cases, bill payment and now THREATENS PROPERTY TAX TRANSACTIONS.
Here's the word from insiders:
"Nobody has seen the Executive. Frank is gone and this is exactly the time when we need him to step up. He should have called a press conference on Friday to update workers and people who rely on the courthouse every day. If he was ahead of the game he would've started working on emergency legislation to get more cash and resources to help the cleanup and renovation. Right now there's still a lot of damage from the flooding that's getting worse. Already City Hall is back up and running and has updated their people about the situation. Here at the the courthouse we've been left on our own."
And so, we hope to see Exec Frank White make a comeback for the benefit of all JaxCo workers and given that he has struck out during this clutch play to literally fix the Courthouse.
