Renewal of transit sales tax the 'ultimate question' for city bus service

How much does KU pay into the Lawrence transit system? What is the share agreement between the City and KU for maintenance, fuel, insurance, acquiring new buses, etc? What does a KU student vs a Lawrence resident pay for a spin around town? What is the ridership % of townie vs college student? These are the ultimate questions when you are asking for more money from Lawrence residents. Not anti bus, just pro fair share.

Lawrence police plan weeks-long DUI crackdown

"Officers will be specifically assigned to catch impaired drivers through the enforcement of traffic regulations such as speeding, signal violations and seat-belt violations, according to the news release." Enforcement of traffic regulations would be most welcome in Lawrence.

Lawrence City Commission to consider site plan for former Jayhawk Bookstore

Why bother with the liquor license adjacent to a school, fraternity, sorority, and a family neighborhood if alcohol is such a small part of the bottom line? I am guessing the college kids would notice that alcohol when they are picking their pastries. I wish them great luck but dying businesses with a liquor license in a college town also follow a unique evolutionary path blossoming as bars with great drink specials.

Wonder what percentage alcohol sales might be in that location during/before/after football and basketball games? 3.2% beverages or full liquor? The frats and sororities will certainly appreciate having a not a bar with alcohol next door on that side of campus.

Lawrence City Commission to review incentives request for downtown grocery store

Any incentives given should terminate and taxes paid if the grocery store closes. Grocery store is excuse to get more handouts towards building more apartments.

Once popular restaurant chain closes west Lawrence location; more reasons to keep an eye on Lawrence's Kmart distribution center

We should help finance a new mall out south so all of our vacated businesses will finally have a location where they can return and prosper. It can't be the Lawrence market, has to be their current location producing these empty buildings around town, they just need a shiny mall and all will be right. Some mall completely different than that crazy Tanger Outlet thing next to the old highway, or Riverfront downtown. Huge, new, and expensive by the new highway can't miss, it would be perfect! Just dreaming here but maybe a monorail from the new mall to the whitewater park?
