The Kansas City city council was in an infrastructure-improving mood Thursday — some of its very old infrastructure. The city council took several steps toward replacing crumbling sewer and water lines.
The full council gave its approval to rehabilitation of sewer lines around 22nd and Paseo. Infrastructure chair Russ Johnson emphasized how old they were.
"That was constructed in 1890," he said. "It's time to rehab it.”
The other council members agreed, and approved spending $1.48 million in existing bond money to do the job.
