Sure thing. The article doesn't go into detail about the pumping/storage systems out there, but it's my understand that the trench resulted in increased collection of water that was also higher in nitrogen content, so farmers needed to use less. That in addition to the fact that there were less farms using it, particularly less sod farming. Here is the link to the article (mostly about the prospect of trucking water): http://www2.ljworld.com/news/2017/sep...

Hi, Melinda,This story is not really about what caused the buildup, but I agree those details are quite interesting. When the storage issues were originally reported in September of last year, the increased intake was mentioned (though not with that specific term). The story from September notes that, in part, "water storage capacity at the site became a problem earlier this year after improvements to the pumping system yielded increased water collection." That's a reference to the trench, for what it's worth. Rochelle

Those criticisms come from the article linked in sidebar titled, "Local group wants Lawrence residents to vote against $116M citywide sales tax renewal." All sources are cited. There are three other articles there you might read as well if you are looking for more information.

Just to be clear, the board won't conduct its own investigations. If a bias complaint is appealed, the board reviews the police department's investigation and then makes a recommendation to the city manager as to whether more investigation is needed. The city manager makes the ultimate decision.

You're welcome. The city right-of-way will shift with the road. The contract states: "The City will vacate its Right of Way in the abandoned portion of Fambrough Drive and KU will convey to the City a Right of Way in the newly-aligned Fambrough Drive, and the abandoned Right of Way will be divided between the University and KUEA and the KUEA portion will become part of the Leased Parking Area."

I have attached the construction agreement and the parking lot lease to the story.

Thanks for your comment. Taxes are levied on 11.5 percent of a home's assessed property value, and a mill is $1 in taxes for every $1,000 of a property's assessed valuation.

Phase one of the 19th Street project is the section of the street from Iowa Street to Naismith Drive. It was originally scheduled for 2018, but was moved up to this year. The pedestrian tunnel is a separate project that would be funded in part by a grant. The city will hear in the fall whether it will be awarded the grant.

The parking lot connects to the alleyway and a sign posted by the parking lot entrance states access to the alley is permitted. I would guess that includes trash trucks.

I've added a line to the story to indicate that the board will review the police investigation of the complaint and if it disagrees would forward an alternative finding to the city manager’s office for additional review.
