Commissioners concerned that Wicked Broadband is trying to manipulate process ahead of key vote

I'm reminded of the story of the guy who murdered both of his parents and then asked the court for mercy because he was an orphan.

Lawrence commission OKs Rock Chalk Park audit, due by end of February

The irony is that if the commission had spent the time going over the original RCP deal that they have on this audit, this kind of audit may not have been necessary.

It may be a great facility, but the process was rushed and deeply flawed, In this case the ends don't justify the means.

Letter: City albatross?

Commissioner Schum's statement is disingenuous and "cya" at its best. RCP was obviously rushed through and it cost Lawrence $$ and a new police facility. The audit will turn out to be one more layer of bullsh*t in this project.

Lawrence to proceed with Rock Chalk Park audit, but first will make another $1 million payment

This project was rushed through with no concern for details, Now it is probably too late to tell how much the city(Us) was ripped off. The audit may help, but there is too much buried and hidden to find out much. It's a sad day when we keep trusting Fritzel.
