"Some observers said that the no-bid contract to build the city’s new recreation center at Rock Chalk Park angered many voters and undermined their trust in the commission."

Not just the commission, we are very disappointed with how KU Endowment handled this.

South Lawrence Trafficway contract to be awarded Sept. 18; construction to begin soon after

I hope it's going to be 4 lanes. It's too bad that the western portion of the bypass is only 2 lanes.

City to consider $50k offer to resolve Varsity House dispute

More than likely the commission will accept his offer, but Fritzel should not have a part in deciding where the money goes with all of the things he's pulled. This commission has no backbone. Fritzel and Compton continue to have their way with these commissioners.

City allows fake grass at apartments

Kudos to Bob for voting against this. Some developers have always gotten what they have wanted through the years from Billings, Fritzel, to Compton.

Westar aims to prevent outages with tree-trimming program

Butcher is a good description of what Wright does to the trees. The flyer Westar gave us states they will remove tree cuttings, but Wright left large limbs in yards throughout our neighborhood. The neighbors did not ask Wright to leave these limbs, but that was Wright's excuse for leaving the limbs.
