Funk Tells Cauthen to Get With the Program


Funk wants Cauthen to get on the bus.

Kansas City, Missouri, Mayor Mark Funkhouser all but calls City Manager Wayne Cauthen insubordinate in this memo dated July 16.

Funkhouser wrote the two-page letter on the same day Cauthen sent this memo to the members of the Finance and Audit Committee. Cauthen’s memo outlined a $10.3 million budget shortfall for the city. Funkhouser’s concern stems from Cauthen’s apparent unwillingness or inability to implement decisions the council made when it passed a budget earlier this year.
