TKC EXCLUSIVE!!! JACKSON COUNTY PAID WORKERS TO ATTEND CHIEFS SUPER BOWL PARADE WHILST KANSAS CITY DELAYS PROVIDING COST DEETS!!!
Super Bowl glory is lone gone but the debate over cash and Kansas City politics persists.
To wit . . .
ACCOUNTING FOR THE "LACKLUSTER" CHIEFS PARADE PROVES DIFFICULT FOR KANSAS CITY LOCAL GOVERNMENT!!!
A word from an AWESOME TKC TIPSTER on a recent bit of 12th & Oak budgeting . . .
"So if you work for Jackson County you get paid time only if you like cold, football, and large crowds."
Accordingly, here's a look at dox from the Courthouse showing how Jackson County is going to spend some of that property tax influx cash . . . On football partying, apparently.
Meanwhile . . .
Remember that the Kansas City Royals World Series Championship Parade cost taxpayers about $350K but this time around there were way more police, the crowd was rougher and suffered worsening instances of crime. Sadly, City Hall has been slow to share cost deets with the media and would rather hide the taxpayer information behind the newspaper's paywall.
