Kansas City, Mo., City Manager Troy Schulte explains some of the details of an $800 million general obligation bond issue to repair city streets, bridges, sidewalks and fountains that he is proposing the City Council place on the April 4, 2017, ballot for voter approval. Speaking at the September 12 meeting of the South Kansas City Alliance, Schulte said the bond issue would also fund flood control projects and a new city animal shelter that would be partly funded by private donations.
