Cheapskate Jackson County Skimping On Kansas City Chiefs Super Bowl Parade?!?

The plebs can guzzle their Bud Light and aggravate their hemorrhoids by screaming into the void all week. 

Here at TKC we bring INSIDE SCOOP ABOUT LOCAL POLITICS and ongoing debate behind the scenes. 

Here's the word on upcoming festivities from trusted insiders . . . 


Sure we LURVE fiscal conservatism . . . 

But anybody who has looked at the COMBAT budget knows that idea of safekeeping taxpayer money at 12th & Oak is a bad joke. Courthouse funds have more padding than any football uniform.

And so . . . 

Let's start out by looking at the cost for this week's big party . . .

The celebration will be free to attend, but will cost at least $2.25 million to put on, according to estimates presented at a Kansas City Council meeting earlier this month.

Kansas City, Missouri, allocated $750,000 for the event and Mayor Quinton Lucas guessed that overtime costs for police and fire fighters would add up to more than $1.5 million.

The Kansas City Sports Commission also expects more than $1 million in private sponsorships.

That's the cover story . . . Here's the INSIDE WORD . . . 

"In the past the county paid $50k, which the city felt was pretty cheap of the county to do. Apparently, (Exec) Frank's team wants to pay the same amount.

"The last parade cost around $800K and the city felt cheated by the meager contribution from the courthouse.

"That's why Councilman O'Neill. referenced the county during his floor comments for passage of their money.

"The Executive's office is being petty, right now it looks like, once again, they're only offering only to pay $50K to perfect the cheap skate reputation of his administration and snub the mayor and the city.

"All of this should show you how petty the Executive's office can be when they are operating behind the scenes."
