SHOCK!!! KANSAS CITY WATER SHUT-OFF RESTART SHUT DOWN!!!

Stringent restrictions and coronavirus rules are still in place throughout Kansas City. There remains a mask mandate and the local economy continues to take a hit. Nevertheless, the Water Department recently announced a return of customer shut-offs that might reveal the desperate budget problems confronted by city hall during the pandemic crisis.

And so, just to be clear . . .

KANSAS CITY WATER CALLOUSLY RESTARTS SHUT-OFFS DESPITE THE ONGOING CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC!!!

The move doesn't seem to show much regard for the current local business limitations enacted by Mayor Quinton Lucas and seeks to return to the "new normal" at the outset of cold & flu season.

Here's the word released just moments ago via Twitter . . .

"Since March, we’ve suspended water shut-offs as a common sense and compassionate response to the challenges presented by pandemic. As a non-profit utility, it’s time to resume our normal business processes and shut-offs will start again in November."

Of course the reaction has already been horrible. Here are a few quotes:

"This is going to kill people. Literally. Shame on you."

"Just in time for the winter spike. Well done!"

"So now that it’s been six months, you’re cool with people dying?"

Already we've seen this message start to spread like wildfire given that WATER SHUT OFFS CONTRADICT STRIDENT CITY HALL POLICY AMID CORONAVIRUS AND KCMO POLITICOS HAVE A GREAT DEAL OF CONTROL OVER THE WATER DEPARTMENT.

Update . . .

KMBC: KC Water announces plans to resume shut-offs, KCMO mayor says not so fast 

Tweet deets:

"Mayor Quinton Lucas responded to a tweet of the utility’s announcement saying, “One advantage of local control of this department is that we can actually vote on decisions like this and reverse them. Expect us to do so soon.”

Update . . .

KC Water shutoff suspension extended until Jan. 16

Deets . . .

"Before 5 p.m., the mayor and the city council had addressed the issue and voted to extend the suspension of shutoffs. The ordinance passed 12-1, with the lone "no" coming from Councilwoman Katheryn Shields. The ordinance extends the suspension of water shutoffs until Jan. 16 of 2021."

Was the water shut off when Cleaver's cohorts burned down Derk's grandmothers house?

What did you expect? Current Trump unemployment rate is 8.4%. It was 4.8% when Obama left office. Millions have lost their job due to the Trump virus. MAGA!

Why do some people think there are free rides in this county?????. Pay your bills! If you don’t have enough money do without tv cable, cigarettes, licquor, fast food! Get another job regardless of how menial you think it is, but pay your bills! Perhaps you should indeed have thought about it in high school when you were out partying and thinking everything would turn out ok! Well, if you had studied and got an education you wouldn’t be in that menial job and could pay your bills. Actions have consequences!

Recent Hot Flash from the Star: KC provides water to 30 surrounding communities.
KCMO residents water rates have gone up 88%, while the thirty other towns and villages that buy water from KCMO have only experienced a 38% increase?

Lucas and the council Gang That Couldn't Shoot Straight need those bucks to keep the lights on at city hall.
The desperate dialing for dollars at 12th and Oak has barely begun.
Layoffs, budget cuts, across-the-board staff reductions, but only in those departments that actually provide services to residents.
All the fluff, PR, and "communications" teams will still remain at full staff.
Upside-down priorities never change.
It's the "secret" of how you can accomplish so little and make it appear to be so much.

Ironically, Obama still holds several records for high black unemployment. Whereas Trump holds the record for the lowest black unemployment (along with Hispanic, Asian American and female unemployment). Trump is the best president for black Americans since Lincoln. This is just one of several moves he has made to help blacks. This guy knows how to get an economy roaring. The Chinese are on Biden's team because they want a lame negotiator with a senile mind.

Pretty sure that if you pay your bill the water department will not turn your water off, same with the electric and gas companies.

Also, if you pay your mortgage or rent you will not be evicted.

Same for your phone company...bet not too many are having their phones turned off.

Kids these days are really stupid.

The water dept is like the airport, whatever money they make has to stay with them, the great news is mayor dumbo can’t touch it or federal prison time is in his future, the feds don’t care if he’s black or white, his blackness and the race card won’t save his ass.

dig a water well and putting in an order for a portable toilet unit would be cheaper.

Wake up America.

Kansas City and Jackson County are controlled by Marxist Democrats.

The Democrat Party is not for the common man; whether you be black, white, asian or hispanic.

KCMO has raised taxpaying citizens water bills by 200% !

Jackson County raised property taxes by 25% this year.

Where is all of the money going?

KCMO has the highest sales tax rate plus a 1% earnings tax.

All of the aforementioned Democrat Party taxes impact working class people more than rich people as the taxes take a larger % of poor people's paychecks. It's called regressive taxation.

The Democrat Party benefits the privileged few and keeps everyone else poor with excessive taxation.

The Democrat Party constantly harps on racism to divide the races so poor blacks and whites do not unite. Divide and conquer.

Chris Wallace, CNN and Joe Biden calling President Trump a white supremist is absolutely ridiculous.

Trump grew up in New York; not a hot bed of Ku Klux Klan activity or guys riding around on horses with pillow cases on.

In fact, I would say there were zero Klansmen in New York.

I have never met anyone in Kansas or Missouri who was a Klansman or knew of a Klansman.

Yes, the Ku Klux Klan was formed by the Democrat Party and existed in southern states from 1860 to 1960's but was pretty much a non-factor from 1970 to today which is the last 50 years.

99.99% of white people detest what the Ku Klux Klan stood for or any current day racist. It's abhorrent.

Any yet, the Marxist Democrat Party and the Media keep beating the white supremacy drum to divide the races. The Democrat elites look down their pointy noses at all working class people whether they are white, black, hispanic or asian.

The Democrat elite and academia call poor white people "white trash" and "deplorables". That is just as awful as calling other races bigoted names.

Democratic RUN CITY'S Water,Company.And this started under the Corrupt Obama administration. That is when things really started getting out of Hand and I have hundreds of instances.

I hope / wish that black people know; that whites support the police arresting a white criminal just as much as arresting a black criminal.

If a white criminal resists arrest and gets shot then he got what he deserved.

For white folks, it's not a black versus white issue it's a law-abiding versus criminal issue.

However, the Marxist Democrats want to portray all whites that support law and order as racists which is the far from the truth.

The sad thing is, a person cannot even drink Kansas City water as it is rancid but Kansas Citians pay the highest water bills.

Wouldn't you think the local Democrat Party that runs the City would ensure its citizens have clean water to drink. The basics of all basics.

Where is all of the tax money going?

Water/sewer has been corrupt for so many years- basically an aged system and old pumps. Best to move to an outlying area with a more modern approach. As rats the size of cats looked down upon hunger city........

To be fair, there's a shit ton more treatment process when you're pulling from a river, let alone the muddy mo, than elevated storage in the desert. Columbia has nice clean water but they pull it from their deep wells, though consequently it has the aftersmell of Satan

Wonder how many past due water bills the city could have brought current with the money that was spent on the stupid BLM murals?
