Incentives review committee agrees to recommend tax rebate for Masonic Temple building

If Doug Compton is such a smart business man why is he always asking for city monies to help him make his projects a success.? It is time for the city (and county) to make these developers use their own money and not the taxpayers of the city and county.

Lawrence library wants $18 million expansion, asks city to schedule public vote

$18 million. I think that they are crazy. The library board just wants to have a BIGGER & MORE LAVISH facility than Topeka. Lets do with what we have. My wife and I winter in Phoenix and utilitize a real nice and small library near our home and we feel that this facility is far nicer that Lawrence's facility. In hard times, like now, do with what you have.

Should the city build a recreation center in west Lawrence?

Let's put that money in our schools where it is needed. We have enough rec centers already. If the city has that much extra money, how about lowering our property taxes
