- The old Richards-Gebaur site, where thousands in weird payments took place
A city audit of expenses by the Port Authority of Kansas City says the agency should return $135,052 in sketchy payments related to work at the former Richards-Gebaur Air Force Base.
The Port Authority has typically been a sleepy extension of city government that primarily oversees property along the riverfront, which means it’s the landlord for Kansas City’s riverboat casinos.
Occasionally the agency hits a trip wire and becomes big news for a while.
