Our readers liked the idea suggested at city hall that pieces of unusable city land could be used for tiny houses and to grow crops.

Citizens also told the city they want better property maintenance and codes enforcement.

The future of the minimum wage in Kansas City became even more complex, with a Nov. 3 vote now on the horizon.

Our Monday morning history feature spotlighted the 4300 blocks of Troost and Harrison in South Hyde Park.
