TKC MUST SEE!!! KANSAS CITY DEMAND FOR WATER DEPARTMENT AUDIT SURGES!!!



At the outset of March our blog KICK-ASS TKC BLOG Community was FIRST to report an uptick in KCMO water rates.

Sadly, the move to increase water rates keeps moving forward despite the Coronavirus pandemic and massive local unemployment.

To wit . . .

TAX FIGHTERS AND LOCALS START DEMAND TO AUDIT THE WATER DEPT!!!

Money line:

"Water rates in Kansas City may soon go up, according to two ordinances just passed out of the city council’s Finance, Governance and Public Safety Committee. Ordinance 200168 would increase water rates by five percent and Ordinance 200169 would increase sewer rates by two and a half percent. These are just the most recent increases in a years-long spike in city-run utility costs . . ."

Developing . . .

All of City Hall needs an audit. Especially with more stimulus money coming in.

Does anyone trust our city government to be responsible with our money or to act with the citizens best interest?

The five percent tax increase doesn’t even go to the water dept. it’s a back door tax that goes to kc’s general budget. It’s supposed to be illegal for the city to take any water dept money.....

everybody is giving mortgage, car, utility and whatever else forgiveness but kc and Jackson county see this as a sign to get more money because they think everybody is skipping payments for the next 60 to 90 days. In their minds it’s easy money. Must be a black thang?

The Water Department horse has not only left the barn long ago.
It has disappeared over the horizon.
Terrible incompetent decisions.
Upside-down priorities.
Cushy contracts for PR.
"Deferred" maintenance for decades.
Utter lack of oversight by one mayor and council after another.
The cupboard is bare.
And the fingerprints will have mysteriously disappeared.
Thanks for playing.

But weird that the Trillion dollar a year pentagon, 500 TIMES BIGGER than KC, never gets an audit.

We could start by auditing you and then gopher, sLIE and the cleave, then finally audit the nazi liar queer.

Remember that thing you posted about not having enough $ to pay the pensions? This is a source of revenue. Fact. Research it.

I like the picture of Sleepy Joe Biden on water skis and wearing a life-jacket.


I assume that picture of Sleepy Joe was taken many, many years ago because currently he can't crawl out from under his bed.

Price GOUGING. And it's going to be worse .As Moore people move out of the City. They have to make up the revenue. How about a class action lawsuit .

Basically I think Retro just had a breakthrough. That's EXACTLY what this is, look at it as a consumer issue!

The rate increase is required; but an audit to determine efficiency / effectiveness would be in order. The contractors inspect their own work. The city employees are too lazy to be bothered with inspecting the work of contractors. I was actually told the "self inspection" is a function of the contract by the water department manager. I couldn't event phantom the employee understood what he was saying...

The water bill crisis has been completely ignored by the mayor and council as they are out of touch with real issues affecting most Kansas Citians.
