Sound Off: I am a Lawrence property owner, resident and taxpayer. Why are city residents like myself not given priority to purchase the yard compost that we have funded? I observed many nonresidents picking up compost at the city sale recently.
Megan Gilliland, the city’s communications manager, provided this answer: The majority of the participants who purchase compost at the city’s compost sale events are Lawrence residents. The city does not currently require proof of residency at the compost sale, but it may be considered for future events.
