Cost estimates for Rock Chalk Park infrastructure come in about $3 million higher than expected; Self's foundation to make $2 million donation

This is exactly what happened when Robinson was built. The Lawrence taxpayers were duped into funding Robinson with the promise that Lawrence residents would have access to the gyms. This was the rational for Lawrence not getting a YMCA/YWCA. Once KU got our money, the doors were locked and residents have never been allowed in the building.

and not even give the public time to review the bid before voting on it. Sort of like how they rushed the initial vote before the elections so that the Lawrence voters would consider this a done deal, making it less of an issue on election day.
This is an absolute outrage. Somebody please start a lawsuit against the city!

Editorial: Arrogant attitude

This is outrageous.
This, (local politics in bed with shady developers), has gone too far. These four commissioners should be ashamed of themselves.
I hope someone with more money and legal experience than I, sues the city commission (the city) for their cronyism. Or more specifically, lack of proper time for the public to review the bids. We are the ones paying for this and we were not even allowed to review the bid. The city needs to be sued and this NEEDS to be put to a public vote.
Outrageous!
