Question

Sound Off: Is it legal to have a portable basketball stand or a pile of wood on a public sidewalk?

Answer

Megan Gilliland, the city’s communications manager, provided this information: City code states that any type of materials or debris cannot be placed on a sidewalk and create a hazard or blockage of the public sidewalk.

It's also illegal in these parts to use a mule for duck hunting.

I saw three blackbirds standing around a busted up graham cracker on the sidewalk. The biggest bird wasn't letting the other two eat their fair share. Can the city do something about that?

Sidewalks are somewhat sacred in Lawrence ks
Vigilante groups were formed to protect them
Once the laws were passed by our town fathers
And patrols went out on a daily basis
To inspect the concrete slabs
About the only thing the city permits on their sidewalks
Are the city owned recycle and trash barrels
But no spitting, please
Our vigilantes may slip and fall
When they are out nickel nosing

I have a neighbors dog that is crapping in my front yard. If I figure out who it is, can I shoot it? The dog that is. Sound off!

You think death is a fair punishment for pooping in a place you don't like?

It's the owners letting the dog crap in your yard. Stun gun the owners and I bet they monitor their animal's bowel movements a little more closely.

who spends time outside anymore? I suppose with portable laptops and wireless routers, the trend is coming back.

If it snows and my sidewalk is covered, do I have to shovel it?

I think if the city requires the home owner to maintain at the home owners expense then they (the city) should have no say.

This is probably someone's kid with basketball hoop and one of those wood skateboard ramps. Kids are out for the summer.
