Kansas City BROKE GO Bond Tax Increase Promises

KCMO has a track record of making big promises during election season and then ignoring their commitments after they cash the checks. 

Here's the latest example . . .

"Since 2017, the city has inspected roughly 750 centerline miles of sidewalk. Another 300 is currently under inspection, which leaves roughly 1,150 centerline miles to be inspected.

"Another priority is repairing ramps and corners where sidewalks meet intersections. The city’s goal is to bring those areas into compliance with federal regulations from the Americans with Disabilities Act . . .

"The city now estimates it will take until 2025 to complete the remaining 47 blocks, instead of a 2022 estimate it gave back in 2017. "

This my seem like a minor detail in a BILLION DOLLAR BUDGET but it's important given that there are more tax increases and promises underway.
