City agrees to hear schools presentation

October 23, 2002


Lawrence city commissioners agreed Tuesday to hear a presentation from the Lawrence Association of Neighborhoods on proposed school closings but most grumbled the meeting will be pointless.

"We don't have any action to take in this matter," Commissioner Jim Henry said.

The Lawrence School Board has indicated it will close Centennial, East Heights and Riverside schools as part of a consolidation plan.

The meeting will be 6:30 p.m. Nov. 13. A location has not been decided.
