Kansas homeowners pick up larger share of tax burden; commercial, industrial and ag taxes stay flat

I did not know it was possible to raise and lower taxes on people according to their Political ideology. If your Taxes go up so do mine. Please try to explain what your last statement means because I just don't get that one.

Kobach uses state plane, government funds to talk at GOP events

For some reason, the LJW won't let me post actual operating cost facts from the Manufacturer's own information. I wonder why? $4.215.00 per hour. Alot more than a few hundred dollars that Kobach is being billed.

What do you think a fair fine for parking violations downtown would be?

I know Lawrence is a small town that can't compare to the likes of, say, San Francisco. But, if you are in San Francisco, and the gourmet Sandwich shop you stopped in for lunch has lousy service and causes you to be late paying your parking meter, you will find a $50 ticket on your windshield. And, that is for the First offense.

Lawrence City Commission to decide on increased parking fines

Lawrence home sales tumble as number of homes on the market hits new low

The problem is developers are not building Single family housing. They are building multi level, expensive rentals with little or no parking and the City commission and the Chamber is supporting this with a Tax abatement for every one that builds them. Can Home owners get a tax abatement for improvements to their homes or property? Why not? OH! I see! It only applies to developers who promise this is all for the good of the city! Hint: There are a lot of citizens that live in this city and have a vested interest in it succeeding. Why not ask them what they think is best for their city? Or, do the Developers see Lawrence as Their City? This may be the problem.
