KANSAS CITY, Mo. - Kansas City's Public Works department received 2,100 pothole complaints on Feb. 21-22, 2019, alone and the city's struggles to fix the road craters created stress and irritation for thousands of drivers.

Why don't they just fill the potholes with dead bodies?

Now there's an idea! Win/win!

Unfortunately, they've started by making a long list of excuses as to why the streets continue to be in the terrible condition that they are, just like they have year after year.
So many "lane miles"!
Particularly bad winter weather!
Budget constraints!
Basic municipal government responsibilities are just so boring!
Stand by for yet another Lucas selfie/TV appearance with his shovel.
What a tiresome joke.

For all of those who complain about the potholes, street lighting, curbs and sidewalks just remember the City took your general fund money and spent $100 plus million on the 18th and Vine district.
Thank you Clever, James, Reed, and others who enabled this irresponsible spending of city funds.

Legit question for the politically connected or aware: is there a way to force an audit of the GO bond funds? Not that the 80% progressives of KC give a rats ass about knowing where their money went as long as a progressive is in control. I'm sure AF curious. That scratch was s'pposed to be used for infrastructure repair and maintenance. I frankly haven't seen much activity driving around my neck of the woods for any number of years, before or after that boondoggle.

^No. There's not. You're on a need to know basis, and you don't need to know.
