TKC QUESTION TONIGHT: WILL JOLIE JUSTUS OR QUINTON LUCAS FIX CONSTANT KANSAS CITY FLOODING CRISIS?!?!
Every time it rains, it floods in Kansas City.
Both urban core and rural areas see rising tides when the downpour is anything less than a sprinkle.
Remember that the Kansas City, Missouri Clean Water Act Settlement with the EPA forced storm sewer repair that still hasn't yet taken hold.
- Brush Creek On The Plaza continues to smell like an open, used toilet at high tide.
- A few fixes in the Southland came too late for small biz that was chased out of a flood zone created by infrastructure neglect.
- At the furthest end of the Kansas City Northland, streets regularly turn into rivers with rainfall over a few inches.
And so . . .
Given that they didn't really address the issue during their tenure on council and this 2019 mayoral campaign is more about personality and culture war issues rather than neighborhood complaints . . .
WHICH MAYORAL CANDIDATE IS MORE LIKELY TO FIX KANSAS CITY'S LONGSTANDING FLOODING CRISIS: JOLIE JUSTUS OR QUINTON LUCAS?!?!?
KSHB: Heavy rainfall on Tuesday leads to flooding concerns around metro
KCTV5: The National Weather Service has placed the Kansas City metro area under a flash flood warning Tuesday evening.
You decide . . .
