TKC MUST READ!!! KANSAS CITY MAYOR QUINTON LUCAS PROMOTES WESTPORT SOCIAL DISTANCING STREET SHUT DOWN AS CORONAVIRUS REOPEN SOLUTION!!!
The reality is that Mayor Lucas confronted widespread resistance to his 10-10-10 plan and so HE'S BACKING DOWN AND ACCEPTING WESTPORT'S ORDERS instead.
Over the past 48 hours the City Hall honcho has taken heat for changing the rules and a lack of consistent guidelines . . . Now, wisely, he's taking credit for the Westport idea and calling it a compromise even if it contradicts more stringent rules devised with the KCMO Health Department.
Mayor Quinton Lucas: "In conversations with our health officials and Westport businesses, I am heartened by the broad embrace of our street closure proposals and more open-air opportunities w/social distancing to allow for Kansas City's responsible and phased reopening of local establishments."
