Newsflash: Kansas City Pothole Crisis Persists Despite Political Promises

KCMO streets remains similar to the lunar surface even if 12th & Oak stats claim otherwise. Even better, there's no cash in the budget to fix the worsening problem.

Here's confirmation:

Kansas City has patched over 2,400 potholes so far this year, but hundreds still need filled

KANSAS CITY, Mo. - The city of Kansas City has filled thousands of potholes so far this year, but there is more work to be done. As of Tuesday afternoon, crews have filled a total of 2,459 potholes out of a total of 3,072 cases reported to 311 this year.

Um, excuse me, tens of thousands of potholes need to be fixed, dumb shits can’t wven admit the gravity of the situation.

People stopped reporting potholes long ago. 311 just closes the tickets, pothole filled or not. Zero accountability. The number of 311 calls has nothing to do with the number of potholes.

Got Subsidized monies for Sports Teams. BUT NOT for Potholes.

I would like to know how they count a filled pothole? Is it they fill the hole with loose fill that pops out when twenty cars drive over it, or is it the ones the five guys in the dump truck slap down with the back of the shovel? If they filled the holes properly first getting the water out and sealing the edges, and compacted it properly they wouldn't be filling the same holes day after day.

You're right, of course.
But your recommendations would require:
Training
Competence
Management
Oversight
Accountability
Please remember that the subjects here are the priorities and performance of KCMO city government.
It never changes.
