Consent agenda item 13 needs more scrutiny. Pedestrian and bicycle underpass at 19th and Iowa from one KU property to another KU property paid for by the City for a cost of $300,000.00? A sidewalk on the east side of Iowa St from 19th St to the overpass at Irving Hill Rd paid for by KU would serve the same purpose. Who would pay to maintain the KUnnel after completion? Another example of KU spending City funds. A tunnel or overpass idea for the safety of walking elementary students at Schwegler Elementary crossing Iowa St has been shot down for years. Someone proposes a tunnel primarily used by KU students, paid for and maintained by the City at 19th and Iowa, and it jumps to the consent agenda?
