RISING KANSAS CITY WATER RATES THREATEN RESIDENTS ALREADY DROWNING IN THE RECENT DELUGE OF HIGHER LOCAL GOVERNMENT LEVIES!!!
A TOP ECHELON INSIDER offers a vital perspective in this deep dive quote:
"The sad truth is that KC Water rates need to double to keep up with and, hopefully, reduce demand. It's sad because we all understand that water is the last commodity and essential for life but KCMO is just using too much of it and our water/sewer infrastructure is so horribly out of date that there aren't a lot of options. Last year (and the year before that) we had to make a significant increase and this time around it's going to be worse given the rough weather from 2019 so far and the absolute need to update the system. We're also looking at another tax increase in addition to higher costs. There are more updates needed than most people could possibly imagine and at the current rate level there is simply no way to cover costs of operation."
We're told that the increases are already underway but customers should notice sometime later this Summer. Public outcry will likely be accompanied by a great many denials from the new Mayor & Council along with empty promises that fixing infrastructure will prevent future cost spikes which hasn't been true of previous improvements.
