IT IS CALLED SUPPLY AND DEMAND
there are more cities who are willing to bribe companies to thier door
than citys like lawrence who just expect them to flock here
because we are all so warm fuzzy and cute
sorry folks, but not everyone thinks lawrence is special
many folks outside of lawrence think of us as most
people think of the FRENCH
sorry , thats the way it is. no brag , just fact
Hmm, seems to me we have social programs for the well to do since the average Joe has been paying for roads and sewers out west and a new sewer plant and now we can't fix the roads that have been here and the city is in a budget crises.
It would be nice if Lawrence encouraged businesses that didn't require the taxpayers to subsidize like we have been subsidizing the developers. If we are going to subsidize businesses it should be put up to vote so we can decide who the winners and losers are.
Seems like the business world is learning from professional sports teams and requiring the city to pay for their buildings while they profit. Not sure if Lawrence needs to fall for that one.
Because attracting/retaining/developing high-paying jobs reduces your burden/share of the taxes. One hundred people earning $100k pay a lot more taxes then 100 people earning $20k. Not to mention the corporate taxes the business pays over the life of the company, and the jobs that are created with building the homes and office and production space, and the sales taxes and property taxes that go along with it. I suppose you would rather spend the average person's tax money on social programs, that invariably contribute to the attracting/retaining/developing of the low-income, non-taxpaying community?
THis is not the government's duty
OK, you take even more tax money away from the average person to shift to a corporation of elitists and this makes the community more affordable how???
