THE GREAT MIDTOWN KANSAS CITY SINK HOLE IS A TESTAMENT TO GO BOND FAIL!!!



A #TBT reminder . . .

On April 4, 2017, voters overwhelmingly approved an $800 million comprehensive capital improvements program to use revenue created by issuing general obligation bonds each year for 20 years. The money will pay for infrastructure improvements across the city that has long been deferred. The effort was branded GO KC.

So far the sidewalk repair that was a big selling point has been scattershot and mostly focused on high-profile political targets. Meanwhile, the city has nearly depleted this fund but STILL needs more cash for growing pothole & street repair.

Our favorite example . . .

THE MIDTOWN KANSAS CITY SINKHOLE IS WHERE CAMPAIGN PROMISES GO TO DIE!!!

The greatest pothole Kansas City has ever witnessed continues to expand amid local weather insanity. Here are the latest updates to everyone's new favorite landmark:

KANSAS CITY, MO (KCTV) -- A sinkhole that originally occurred on Monday at 35th and Gilliam, has now caught the attention of mayor elect Quinton Lucas. He jokingly tweeted, "I told y'all we need to fix up the streets." I told y'all we needed to fix up the streets.

Did my special friend from Hyde Park fall in it or did she blow up because she can't pay her new taxes on her cave house?

The sinkhole on Guinotte is still not repaired. Go figure. It's only been a month.

Hey KCMO government, fix the roads you taxed me to build, so I won’t fuck up my car you annually tax me to drive, that I paid for with my income which you also heavily tax, that I park at my home that’s highly over taxed?

Don't worry Quinton all the fixed income retirees trying to hang onto their homes will pay for it.

Gail McCann Beatty just told the board she believes the large number of appeals, 22,000 was possibly an attempt to “crash the system.”
The board is asking her questions right now

Bad news KCMO residents.
The most of the GO bond money is already GOne!
Filling in those holes in the operating budget instead of the many many holes in the streets.
And worse times coming just around the corner.
Much worse.
Dig deep!

That is the dumbest thing I ever heard...she is essentially accusing 22,000 Jackson County taxpayers of having an agenda to sabotage the County hardware. Hmmmm. Yet, in an interview she states she didnt do her job...

The director of assessment is also supposed to file a report with the legislative auditor and the clerk of the county legislature that details any residential properties that increase more than 50% in value or increase more than $50,000. The rules also apply to commercial property. In that case, the report should include commercial properties that spike more than 100,000% or 50% in value.
