Independence MO's Corporate Welfare To Slash City Services


It's a position I'm sure every taxpaying Indy resident enjoys- seeing their hard-earned/spent tax dollars going to viable corporations through wonky real estate financing deals.


Because the City of Independence's politicians were so short-sighted (corrupt?)- that money used to pay-down the bonds at the fancy Bass Pro Shops center near U.S. 40 and I-470 won't be available to pay for frivolous items such as full fire and police protection and street lights- according to the INDEPENDENCE-BLUE SPRINGS/GRAIN VALLEY EXAMINER.


Stay tuned for more corporate welfare issued by your local politicians- as you watch your property tax go UP and your city's services go DOWN.
