To the editor:
Why do the residents of Lawrence have the cost burden for repairs to the streets and public facilities, by themselves, as taxpayers? A very large number of college students bear none of the cost.
I propose a city car sticker (say $25 per year) for all residents, permanent and temporary, whose cars travel our city streets. This money can be used for upkeep of our streets and public facilities.
I know this will be viewed as a hot potato in some areas, but the homeowner cannot alone support the cost though tax increases. Let everyone who lives and enjoys Lawrence share the cost.
