What’s the 411 on Kansas City’s 311 program?
Kansas City's 311 program allows residents to report a host of problems including trash pickup, property violations and lost pets. But in some parts of town, residents wait a lot longer for their issues to be fixed.
Around 300,000 complaints have been called in to Kansas City's 311 program since March 2021. The issues range from trash, street maintenance and property violations. The KC Media Collective analyzed the problems, where they are and how long they take to be fixed.
KCUR's Nomin Ujiyediin sat down with Flatland's Julie Freijat and the Kansas City Beacon's Josh Merchant to get an update on Kansas City's 311 program.
Kansas City Today is hosted by Nomin Ujiyediin. It is produced by Trevor Grandin, Byron Love, and KCUR Studios, and edited by Gabe Rosenberg and Lisa Rodriguez.
