On the street: Do you think the city should raise property taxes to pay for street repairs?

Asked at Massachusetts Street on July 7, 2006

Mary Brewster, DePaul University graduate student, Lawrence

“No, because the cost of living is so high already. It will deter people from wanting to buy homes.”

Gary Archer, information technology consultant, Olathe

“I think the property taxes are too high anyway. They get a lot of money anyway. Maybe they just need to rearrange their priorities.”

Maggie Little, retail manager, Lawrence

“No. I’m sure that they can find the money in other places.”

Pat Curtiss, self-employed, rural Lawrence

“Taxes of some form have to be raised, but I don’t think that property taxes should always be the first place to go.”
