Kansas City Fountain Suffers Soap Attack



This bit of local vandalism might be encouraging us to continue washing our hands amid the pandemic . . . And it's cute but also costly at a time when the local budget can't afford the demands of repair and upkeep.

Here's the cutesy write-up from newsies who don't really live here . . .

Prankster turns Meyer Circle Fountain into a bubble bath

Deets:

"KANSAS CITY, Mo. - The work of a prankster is going to cost Kansas City hundreds of dollars. Meyer Circle Fountain looked like a bubble bath Sunday morning. According to the Parks and Recreation department, dishwashing detergent got dumped into the fountain. The city says it will cost around $500 to clean it out."

Add some soap defoamer and not waste $500.

They used to soap the fountains back in the seventies, glad to see a worthy tradition started again!

Isn't it good to know that KSHB 41 has their reporting priorities straight?
A high school prankster's late-night antics make headlines while BLM protests precipitate KCMO to bust their budget by millions of dollars!!!

(A fountain with detergent foam can be remedied with one person spending a few minutes of time. Only a wasteful bureaucracy would send a city crew on overtime to deal with this trivial issue.)

KSHB-a bunch of hard hitting journalists trying to keep themselves relevant.....and struggling.

Good it's time for the dirty folks at city hall to take a bath and wash off all the dirt they spew out across the city. And please someone wash Patrick Mahomes Pompadour hair.

it's a lot cheaper to clean up a soapy fountain than to pay for a road named after MLK Jr
