Lawrence looks to increase spending on vehicles by more than $1 million in 2016


I have maintained a few vehicles in my day, and the single most expensive line item - per mile- is collision repair.

Is the City self insured for collision, or is collision damage outsourced to a retail repair shop?

Does the age, or mileage impact the cost of collision damage? Not much, in my opinion.

Maybe, our elected folks could ask a few questions regarding this matter...... But don't count on it.
Rock Chalk.

Lawrence looks to increase spending on vehicles by more than $1 million in 2016

"The city spent $1.9 million in 2013 to repair equipment. That’s up from $1.2 million in 2003 and $1.7 million in 2008."

That's about same percentage increase as my property tax, sales tax, and water bill. Maybe.....just maybe, I could get a tax rebate to replace my vehicle? Oh, that's right. I just PAY taxes.

Davis loses ground to Brownback in Kansas governor's race


We (the little guys) are the majority, and the majority vote is what elects our leaders. Why do special interest groups control our government? Because we ( the the little guys) allow it by not voting!!

If you like what Brownback has done, then vote for him. If not, vote for new leadership. But at least go out and vote. I am convinced that if 80% of us voted, the results would be quite different. At the very least, our elected officials would be aware of who they represent.

News of changes for Taco Bell, Buffalo Wild Wings; Kansas Half Marathon wants to return to downtown

"The fire department is estimating it will spend about $2,200 staffing the event. The police department estimates it will spend about $6,000 staffing the event."..... (according to city estimates)

The 5K marathon is a major fund raiser for Health Care Access, a non profit that assists those in need of health services in our city.

We taxpayers invest millions on tax rebates, and community facilities that may (or may not) promote healthy lifestyles, and our city leaders question a fund raiser for Health Care Access? Wow!

What a waste of money......

Maybe Zinger and Weis will meet again at the poor house after they both blow by KU with millions.

Who are the real losers here???

Lawrence Municipal Court has two days worth of mail stolen

This could turn into a real can of worms. "I mailed it in" comes to mind.
