I like chief Burns approach....seeking input from Lawrence folks.
Still remains to be seen, but I remain hopeful.

Looking at the bright side, USA citizens are finally paying attention, and have an opinion on the state of our nation. That is (in my opinion) essential in a democracy such as ours.

I remember Local Burger. Congrats to Hilary Brown's success.
However, no more city grants... period

Mental health yes. Jail expansion.... ???. They are separate issues and should be proposed that way.

I don't understand how a vacant building benefits the owner. It may be a tax loss, but I think a business owner would benefit by making a profit and pay taxes. Maybe I just don't get it.

All of us here in the USA, have the freedom to voice our opinions, and to peacefully demonstrate our beliefs. This is one of the many reasons I choose to live here in the United States.

By the way, hope this isn't a women's only gig. "2018 Women’s March" sounds too gender specific to me. Men should not be discriminated against just because they are male..... Just my opinion.

"Pay for the audit: The city ordered the $49,000 audit last year after owners of the Riverfront Plaza asked for an account summary, and it was found land lease payments of about $250,000 had been neither billed or paid for several years......"

Our city government had to pay $49,000 to learn what is going on?.

Wow, no wonder taxpayers have "perceived" trust issues.

Thanks for your advice. All of us (who read the article) will benefit from your suggestions.

It seems to me the city has some "trust issues" with Lawrence taxpayers. Don't change the sealed bid process , enforce compliance from the contractor who is doing the work as specified in the sealed bid process.
If we (City) can't enforce the specs, then fix the enforcement issue.... not the bidding process.

xbusguy (Chris Ogle) says...

I didn't read anything about city handouts. To me, that is very refreshing.
If they want to invest/gamble with private funds, and meet city compliance standards..... then more power to them. Who knows, it may create taxable income for the city.
Am I missing something?
