Got a pothole? This is how KCMO decides where to patch first

KANSAS CITY, Mo. - Since the beginning of the year, the city's 311 call center has opened 4,500 requests to fix potholes. Many of the unresolved cases can be found in south Kansas City. One of the craters sits in front of Fields Brothers Import Auto Repair at Troost Ave.

Yet one more that the City has not fixed is the two block long gap running down the center of North Campbell between 44th and 43rd Streets. This has existed for and has been expanding over a four year period. It now has voids of differing widths and depths, the largest is 14 inches wide, 48 inches long, and at its maximum 8 inches deep.

311, the Mayor's Office, Councilwoman Justice, and Councilwoman Shields have all been contacted repeatedly byrsidents and by the 40-46 Neighborhood Association over the past four years, 311 has assigned at least six different "case numbers' to the matter, and the only other response (three years ago) has been from Councilwoman Shields' office, who let us now "Councilwoman Shields would look into it".

I will believe that the City is repairing potholes when I start seeing repaired potholes.

Oh sure, repairs got done quicker starting in early March because a private firm was called in to help fill potholes. Why are there 30 unfilled positions in that department? Oh, maybe because it's easier to long nap in bed all day instead of getting woke up every half hour to rotate with the crew through some slow shuffling about to look busy, cracking jokes between shovel leanings, and chain smoking around noisy, stinky trucks. Yep. If the kids are getting free breakfast and lunch at school, babymamas' got their SNAP and Section 8, then, baby daddy ain't gotta be hassled with no J.O.B. y'all.

Complete bullshit article. There are potholes on major arterial Waldo roads not fixed for weeks and months. Also, the stats on closed 311 cases are rigged. Multiple reports of the same pothole are closed out but the original case remains. Thus the closing percentage is skewed to show completion when, in fact, nothing is done. For fucks sake, do so actual journalism, KC Media. Earn your money instead of simply publishing the City’s lies again.

^^Or your lies for that matter. Hate to break it to you loser, but the Star does not investigate bat-shit crazy losers like yourself. Go sell that shit elsewhere.

The pothole problem is going to last for year and what sucks is that next year it's just going to get worse.
