The article reports on the possible default for $4.9 million outstanding from $39.03 million of floating-rate single-family mortgage revenue bonds issued in June 1981 by Wyandotte County/Kansas City Unified Government because of insufficient funds. Standard & Poor's has lowered its ratings on the debt from B to CCC. According to Moody's, the revenue generated by interest from loans in the bond pool will not be sufficient to pay the debt service.
