  • 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.
