They’ll survive without it, suck it up buttercups, at least you didn’t lose your jobs or a business. They’re are far too many people in dire straights to be pissing and moaning about a lousy nine million bucks when you’re in a secure high paying job.

Fix the ridiculous overtime policies and you could save way over $9mil. Crazy the amount of overtime a KCFD person can receive.

4.5% is just the beginning of the budget cutting at KCMO city hall.
Lucas and the gang have spent little attention to the actual reductions in revenue streams coming in the next months.
Shields probably isn't too far off in her estimates of hundreds of layoffs.
Bankruptcy comes very slowly.
Then very very quickly.
Especially to the clueless.

When the Negros chanted burn the city to the ground, I guess Our elected officials believed their stupid chants.

This city needs 50% less firemen and 50% more police offers.

One less trip to Price Chopper and the 4.5% cut is a non issue. Paying a front line fire employee in excess of $200,000 due to overtime should be a criminal offense, not a union contract. The revenue shortfalls will be slow in the making due to the monies from the feds.
