KCMO Mayor Sly James on All-Star Game, Google Fiber, Streetcars, Infrastructure, Schools & More
One down and one go to: baseball’s 2012 All-Star Game brought national attention to Kansas City, and this Thursday, Google Fiber will tell us how much it will cost to speed up our reputation.
While residents have been riding the feel-good wave, Kansas City Missouri Mayor Sly James has been wrestling with the future of a downtown hotel and what should happen to Kemper Arena.<--break->
Tuesday on Up to Date, Steve Kraske asks Mayor James if the All-Star Game was the boon to the community it was hyped to be and whether the city has figured out what to do with Google Fiber.
Plus, we’ll ask why the City Council remains committed to streetcars after failing to win federal funding for the project and how city services are dealing with the effects of the current heat wave and drought.
