Lawrence City Commission considers need for new police department building

Do note the "five-to-seven year plan" portion of this article. What that ultimately means is they want 1.2 million dollars (which is way more than enough considering, in reality, there is hardly any crime here.) and they dont have to produce any results for nearly a decade. Its 1.2 million dollars of tax payer money (thats you and me) that is practically vanishing. Lets not forget the water intake that has been broken for years they need millions to fix all of the sudden as well which gives them an excuse to raise everyones water bill which is already outrageously high (unless I have a leak over here or something). Whoever is calling the shots at the top is what, I predict at some point in the future, will be widely known and accepted as "mentally challenged". This is the sort of thing we (the good citizens of Lawrence as a unit) need to protest [peacefully] in the streets about. This city is rapidly and steadily going right down the economic toilet and all due to extremely poor decision making.

Amen to that. I think LJworld should find and post an article containing the current salaries of all these decision/excuse making city hall richies. Im betting the whole city (those who pay any attention) would be disgusted and enraged. Im betting that, because for them, (since power tends to corrupt) it would be way easier to hike the price of every bill we're forced to pay than cut their own paychecks a little. Either way... they are making way more annually than any of us to sit on their thrones screwing everything up and that shouldn't be the case if the job they're doing doesn't suffice.

P.S.
still mad about Lowe's + why not stop blowing off the parking tickets that get handed out on mass and find a way to make people pay them?? why employ people to dish out these stupid petty tickets and then refuse to collect?? pathetic excuse for leadership imho.

why are we changing our 1.2 million dollar reason around?! O.O this is just like the water intake crap. shouldnt have chased Lowe's off and then we wouldn't be so broke right now and going to these desperate lengths to get money that isnt going to be there. nobody really needed that previous article that told us all Lawrence economy was on the fritz. get Lowe's on the phone!

Town Talk: North Lawrence adds flea market-type business; Lawrence fares poorly in economic ranking; West Campus incubator eyeing expansion, funding; roadwork short- and long-term

everyone should check out alt-market.com - they are preemptively establishing barter networks for when the proverbial doo-doo hits the fan... just thought Id share...
