Will the council take a cut in pay themselves?

Will Lucas do the same?

I mean if things have to be trimmed back money wise lets all take a hit.

Sounds like 7:27 is the Mayor or a City Council person.

Pay cut talk for the Mayor and City Council got 7:27 triggered.

You can count on the gang at 12th and Oak to treat the budget cuts just like the Star handles news.
Separate the wheat from the chaff.....and print the chaff.
The KCMO budget will keep the fluff and giveaways and reduce what few basic services that residents receive.
Upside-down priorities don't change just because there's an emergency.
Momentum!

I would like to make recommendation to the KCMO City Council for budget cuts:
1) Mayor
2) City Manager
3) Parks and Recreation Board
4) Street Car
5) 18th and Vine district
6) Street Department Sign shop
7) Street renaming activities
8) Statue removals and fountain renaming projects
9) Jackson County Payments
10) Tax incentives that include school tax giveaways.
11) Any funds going to areas of the city where residents do not cooperate with police on crime reduction.

City has lots of money ! New bike lanes being installed today on Gillham at Armour what a joke.

@ 11:04 @ 9:52 here- You are correct, adding Bike Lanes anywhere in the city to my cuts list # 12.

There were for revenue shortfall forecasts. The last presentation by the head of finance was the spreadsheet from 2008, not a "forecast". The head of finance has since moved on to a new job.

Bike boy Bunch is working to manipulate budgets to get his bike lanes without public input. When he tried to control public input and review, it backfired. He has taken his effort under the radar. Gotta watch him!
