Lee's Summit Refutes Proposed Kansas City Landfill Rumors

Our 2nd favorite suburbanites in the whole wide world are pushing back against fear that 12th & Oak plans to take a dump on them. 

To wit . . . 


Perspective . . .

We respect their concerns but KCMO is notorious for dumping trash on neighbors and in parts of town that don't vote the right way. 

Back in the 80s one of the top politicos in KC planted a HUGE landfill in the Northland because the entire district voted against him. 

This time around  . . . A snub to Missouri GOP voters wouldn't be really surprising and might make the residents of Brookside & Ward Parkway giggle a bit regarding the questionable future of McMansions. 

Nevertheless, here's the money line . . .

"Lee’s Summit officials have been attempting to learn of the facts related to this matter.  What has been verified thus far is there are no applications filed with the City of Kansas City to pursue a landfill at this described location.   What is not clear or understood, is whether any efforts or discussions have been held informally to plan for or pursue a landfill.  Lee’s Summit officials have also been in contact with the Missouri Department of Natural Resources (MDNR) which reports no applications for a landfill in this area have been filed with MDNR, and no conversations have occurred with MDNR staff.

"Until such time an application is filed with MDNR or the City of Kansas City, it is difficult to take a position or stance on speculation.  If facts become known, and there are efforts underway to propose a landfill in this area, Lee’s Summit officials will be prepared to provide input and communicate any concerns based on the facts that have been provided."

Translation . . .

Now would be a good time to invest in air freshener.
