KANSAS CITY ENDURES STREET CLEARING FAIL AMID ARCTIC TEMPERATURES!!!

Amid these "darkest days" of COVID Winter 2021, the situation on Kansas City streets becomes even more dire.

To wit . . .

KANSAS CITY STREET CLEARING STAYS LOSING AGAIN DESPITE NEW PLAN FROM THE MAYOR & NEW CITY MANAGER!!!

To be fair, the new ideas for urban core snow removal seem impressive and like something works in nicer places.

The reality is that local side streets NEVER get cleared and KCMO residents in the Northland and South side often believe the Kansas City snow plows are an urban legend.

Sadly, yet again, what we've seen from city hall is a far more effective management of social media than treacherous streets as accidents pile up despite upbeat chatter from 12th & Oak.

That's a sad story TKC but right across the state line things are moving along nicely in Overland Park. You forgot to mention that. Other cities in the metro do a great job of clearing the streets.

Sad.

Good point. That's why we need more federal subsidized housing in that area so that locals can enjoy the nicer streets.

Team Biden is on it!

Thank you for the suggestion!

If this mayor would stop his social justice crap for just 10 minutes and remember is the mayor of this ENTIRE city and a lot of other folks need his attention. SAD STATE OF AFFAIRS in KC; this mayor will go down in Infamy

They need to be better at putting down salt, the city refuses to use salt once it gets below 25 degrees, they screwed the pooch by not putting any down which resulted in icy streets. Change the rules morons, it’ll work at lower temps than that.

The homecoming for mayor Lucas is on. Trash pickup will be delayed for two weeks as public works prepare the route. Security will be provided by the black panther party. So let’s all get out there and support the mayor and welcome him home from an exhausting trip to Tampa.

Does this surprise anyone? This is going to happen year after year storm after storm. The small rural towns with less tax income have their streets cleared and salted. No problems. Maybe the residents in KC should check their leadership. I'll bet Armour with that protected bike lane is a huge mess.

It's sunny and warm were Lucas is so I doubt he's too concerned about the streets here.

I texted the Mayor today and suggested that they put plows on the trash truck. His reply was that they do. I told him that maybe he should consider getting out of the trash business and got no response.

His cell number is quite easy to find. Just Google Quinton Lucas cell number.

Two times in a row Mayor Mckneely has failed in his attempt to have city employees handle the removal of a 1 inch snowstorm.
Hate to see what happens when we have an epic 1/4 inch snowstorm.

Vote Yes on the Earnings Tax renewal, so we can keep spending tax money on entertainment districts, convention centers, convention hotels, parking garages for luxury condos and apartments, toy trains, stadiums and subsidize underperforming TIF's.

If you can’t cant get snow removal right.....

Very interesting stuff here, which may point to a pretty dramatic conclusion.  In a piece headlined, "the Left's vaccine problem," the New York Times' David Leonhardt notes that conservative governments -- at the national and state level -- are outperforming their leftist counterparts on the vital metric of getting citizens vaccinated quickly and efficiently.

The lefties just can’t do anything right, they muck up everything they touch.

Maybe the snow removal team should tie Dr. Rex Archer to the front of a snow plow and run him up and down Kansas City's streets as he is full of hot gas.

Saw on the news that the KCFD went down to Bartle Hall and hosed down the homeless folks to get them out of the convention center.

Jesus could be mayor and you guys would still be bitching about the streets.

Change the rules morons

Yes let's change the rules of science and make salt an effective melting agent below 22 degrees. Because it never has been.

Jesus could get snow and trash removal correct.

We are totally screwed if we get an actual storm here. Piss poor snow removal and no trash pick up.

3:13 is exactly right. Not only do other cities, both large and small, have their streets cleared, they do it without screwing people over with an e-tax. Kansas Shitty gets shittier by the day.

Complete and total failure on an issue of extremely basic governance. Someone wake up Mayor McDrinkerson!

Never mind, he's worse than useless.

Does Jesus work in Kansas? I drove on their roads and they were fine.

Kansas City couldn't pour piss out of a boot if the instructions were on the heel.

Oh please, please write up more amazing stories about snow and snow removal. It's soooo interesting.

What snow removal?

The black panthers are in charge of snow removal and trash pickup starting next week.

The Black Panthers should have it taken care of before dawn. They hate everything white.

Our great city employees were too hungover today to come into work apparently. They probably got wasted last night while watching Mahomie get whooped.
