Lawrence City Commission faced with dilemma: raise taxes or cut city staff

People pay their taxes with dollars, not mill rates. We measure the increase in property tax dollars (and also mill rates, population and inflation). The property tax data is provided by the City of Lawrence to the Department of Revenue, and we obtain it in Open Records requests.

The payroll data is sourced to Open Records requests submitted to City of Lawrence. Property tax data comes from Dept. of Revenue, as provided to them by City of Lawrence.
