Just like all the other "investors" and "developers" in KCMO, these new mid=town folks will have $1.98 of their own money and need just $35 million or so from the taxpayers to pursue their dreams.
But you can be sure there'll be a big big payback for everyone when it all turns out to be another roaring success.
Maybe the "developer" from the Mission, Ks fiasco can get involved.
THE streetcar has to be the biggest joke to come along in KCMO for a very long time, which is saying a lot.
And once a quasi-public bureaucracy has been created, it never will go away.
It just gets bigger and bigger and blows through more an more tax money.
Dig deeper KCMO taxpayers.
