How should the city address the proposed budget cuts?
Asked at The Merc, 901 Iowa St. on February 3, 2009
“I think they should put it to a vote and ask for a tax increase.”
“I don’t think they should be cutting into the types of things we enjoy in Lawrence … like the wading pool and Prairie Park Nature Center.”
“If the cuts really are necessary, then the city’s got to do what the city’s got to do.”
“They need to adopt (the policy), ‘If you don’t work, you don’t eat’ program. The social programs need to be reduced dramatically.”
