Be lucky you had a job. Most KCMO pensions are wasted on deadbeat employees. The Water Dept is a crime ring.

This is the trademark of city manager, Troy Schulte. As usual, city employees are an after thought and the case made by his administration lacks clarity, transparency and projects his preference to outsource city services so he can use the funding somewhere else. I bet he already has plans to allocate the savings somewhere else in the budget.

The city manager is a spin master that thrives on close door sessions to win over council members. The true outcome is rarely what is propagated initially and there is never any unbiased evaluation of the efficiency or effectiveness follow up.

Truth is, the city manager doesn’t think much of the rank and file employees. As the creator of RIF, reduction in force practice that has been used to selectively terminate employees based on his personal subjectivity and resulted in millions in lawsuit settlements. But of course this information is not made public because of his use of nondisclosure agreements.

If the new mayor allows this blatant lack of transparency to continue the citizens of Kansas City are truly on the loosing end.
