City Commission set to decide issue of rental licensing and inspection program

If approved, there will only be "bad Landlords" in our city. All costs will be passed on to tenants, who have many prescriptive rights already. Why not enforce current city ordinances now on the books. Is this just another way of raising taxes on a select group by coming in the back door ? No more cheap rent in Lawrence, Kansas.

Lawrence wants property to house multimillion dollar police headquarters

Why not within walking distance of the Courthouse... due east of the current facility. The old neighborhoods have seen better days. One square block is all that would be necessary. East Lawrence Neighborhood Associations should welcome such an improvement.

Longtime art glass business in jeopardy after city declares studio uninhabitable

$125 K for a new roof plus roof structure repairs still is about 4x what it should be. LPA needs to put the project out on bids, repair the building, and take care of the mold problem. Whats so difficult?? FSG is a great small business for Lawrence, lets keep them going !

Lawrence city commissioners narrowly approve ban on porch couches

Ten fires out of 463... or 2.16 % of fires are caused by upholstered furniture on porches. What about upholstered furniture indoors? What about the almost 98% of other type of fires? What will the City do next to protect us from ourselves? Now, it's the landlords problem? Property owners beware !! Big Brother is watching.

City commission to consider approval of expanded rental licensing program Tuesday

Here we go again. Another way of adding to the tax base, this time under the guise of protecting the poor, defenseless tenants from the mean, nasty, evil, money-hungry slumlords.
Aren't there enough ordinances on the books now to do away with the crappy rental places ?
Additional fees paid to the City will be passed on to the tenants anyhow. Just another backdoor way of raising taxes .

After housing, what's your highest monthly bill?

Health care is far and away in first place. easily outrunning housing and food, combined.
Try being disabled in the state of Kansas... you learn to shift gears, live on less, do what it takes to maintain a quality life. No maximums here, lotsa minimums and enjoying it !
