The current administration believes that saving lives is a priority and questions about the management of homeless facilities have been downplayed and deflected.

AMID A BUDGET CRISIS AND LOOMING BANKRUPTCY, KANSAS CITY IS SPENDING BIG BUCKS ON THE HOMELESS!!!
Here's an important overview of expenses that have so far been unchecked . . .
KCMO is spending $1.25 million for the cold weather months for so called housing.
28 motel rooms for 3 months and they gave an organization over $700,000.00 for that which is crazy. Bartle Hall housing is budgeted at $500,000.00.
But at $70.00 a day per person it doesn't seem like a lot until you uncover the expenditures and what the city is really paying for . . .
Bartle Hall is a city owned building so why is it costing so much for them to house people there??? That's a fixed operational cost the city incurs already.
If you take the 28 hotel rooms let's say @$65 a night for 90 nights that's $163,800 what are they spending the additional $600,000.00 on . . . The city is contracting with Hope Faith on a $727,000 deal to use 28 hotel rooms for temporary housing for families.
Hope Faith is a great organization but the numbers don't add up
With a budget shortfall of $70 million you'd think there would be better accountability of funds spent.
