Here's the way I figure it . . .
THE TKC BLOG COMMUNITY JUST SAVED MIDTOWN KANSAS CITY HOMEOWNERS A FEW HUNDRED BUCKS EVERY YEAR!!!
There's a lot of recent chatter about accountability and transparency from politicos but it was our blog community snark and good times that made the difference.
I'll only vaguely acknowledge some chatter on Nextdoor because that website it mostly useless for anything but reporting homeless guys peeing on your lawn to no avail. But I digress . . .
Today we make it our lead post.
And now the toy train admits their FAIL . . .
Statement from the Main Street Rail TDD regarding recent property assessment notifications | June 21, 2021
Thank you for reaching out to us. We apologize for the erroneous mailing list used for our informational assessment letters. There has been no change to the special assessment zone from the maps that are and have been publicly available at www.kcstreetcar.org/tdd.
The TDD Board has no staff; City staff handled the mailing process for us. We are still investigating and will take corrective actions ASAP. However, please note this was not a bill. It was just intended as advance notice to allow planning for end of year billing since this is the first year of the Main Street Rail TDD’s annual special assessment. We sincerely regret the confusion.

Kansas City Main Street Rail TDD
If he had a real newspaper in Kansas City . . . This note wouldn't be hidden behind a paywall.
Thankfully, Fox4 offered follow-up and they have a much greater audience than any dead-tree operation in Kansas City.
Again . . .
THE STREETCAR TAX FAIL OFFERS A DANGEROUS GLIMPSE AT THE POWER OF THE MAIN STREET TOY TRAIN TDD THAT NOW THREATENS MIDTOWN!!!
