State lawmakers ask for better notice after city's release of nitrogen-contaminated water into Kansas River; 10 million gallons released so far

Yes, apparently Pine's sod farm could handle up to vie applications per year. Ask Chad if he has any ideas what's going to happen to that property or what it's being used for now. Maybe we can just blame this all on the Pines!

Thanks, Rochelle. Can you provide a link to that story? I could find nothing on the city's Farmland web page.

Big part of the story and cause of the buildup is missing from this story. Go to 2:18:00 and listen to Senator Francisco's question about the central interceptor trench followed by the city's response. This is the first time I've heard anything about this trench. (Now I will have to go back and review Farmland documents on city's website: https://lawrenceks.org/farmland/). It sounds like it was a significant contributor to the water collection. Please do more complete reporting. Thank you.

Property tax lid causing harm, Kansas cities and counties tell lawmakers

And when that isn't enough, keep our local sales taxes too high.

Lawrence sales tax collections among the best in the state; city on pace to collect more than budgeted in 2017

"For reasons that aren’t entirely clear to me, the city’s 2017 budget called for a pretty large increase in one particular type of use tax. That particular increase hasn’t materialized"

Is this a secret?

Lawrence Police Department's request for downtown surveillance cameras fizzled 5 years ago; no plans to add them now

You realize you can only unseat them if they run for re-election, right? And voter turnout was a lot higher this year than in previous years.

Uh, no. We just had an election earlier this month. It sounded like you didn't realize that.

"It is time to get out and vote and really put some thought into who we are electing to run this city."

You're joking, right?

Where is the Rock Chalk Park bump? Sales tax numbers create questions about how much Junior Olympics visitors spent in Lawrence

Oh, Wilbur...this must be a first! I should screen shot this. Let me know if you want a yard sign!
