A special closed-door executive session between Lawrence city commissioners and Douglas County commissioners is scheduled for 6:15 p.m. today to discuss a possible real estate acquisition.
Althought the exact reason for the closed session has not yet been revealed, city and county leaders have been discussing possibly buying the former Farmland Industries site just east of Lawrence. Also, the city is in the process of making a major land purchase for a new sewer treatment plant south of the Wakarusa River.
The meeting will be at Fire Station No. 5, 1911 Stewart Ave. City commissioners will also have a study session to discuss the city budget at 7 p.m. at the fire station.
