To the editor:
The Feb. 5 article about Ms. Hearn and her rental properties raises some very interesting questions. Ms. Hearn collected $2,800 in fines she levied against the tenants of one of her rental houses. The fines according to the article were due because the police were called to the house for parties.
The parties according to the article were held and a fee collected at the party. The fee was for the cup. The cup of course is used for the alcohol at the party.
Why is it that Ms. Hearn wants Kansas University to do something, yet she allowed the parties to continue for a year at the house in question and the police were called 14 times? She did say she collected $200 per party.
Better yet, how much has the city fined Ms. Hearn for having the police at the house in question? Is it standard operating costs for the city to send the police 14 times to one property?
And the city commissioners wonder why families do not want to live in Lawrence? And the taxpayers in Lawrence wonder why their taxes are high? Hint: 14 police calls to one house?
Sounds like Ms. Hearn has what might be called the New Age Cash Flow program for rentals. When is the next seminar? Will the Lawrence city commissioners be present? They might just figure out how to improve the cash flow to the city!
