KCK right to abandon lawsuit and find new tenant for EPA building
The Kansas City Star
It’s not Elvis, but the regional office of the Environmental Protection Agency has left the building.
The Unified Government of Wyandotte County did the right thing in dropping its legal challenge to keep the EPA in downtown Kansas City, Kan. The EPA decided last year to move to Lenexa despite having custom-built offices in Kansas City, Kan.
But that’s called politics, where political waste is baked into the operation. Rather than waste more money trying to sue the EPA into coming back, Kansas City, Kan., officials are pursuing new tenants for the five-story structure built in 1999.
Kansas City Mayor Sly James should be very nervous now.
