Auditors continue to review Oread sales tax documents; timeline for resolution uncertain

Just stop all tax incentives until the city figures out the existing problems. JUST STOP IT.
If we can't understand where we are, then how can we decide on where we are going.

City Commission undecided about East Ninth Project, votes to discuss it in coming weeks

Our city commission made the right decision on this matter. In my opinion, we (the city) need to focus on our 2017 budget first...... Can we afford the project at this point? If not, then wait until we can afford it.

Money woes: Finding funds for affordable housing in Lawrence

Bob, what a refreshing idea, which leads to a not so brilliant question: Why do the big developers, more commonly known as the "chosen few" get tax incentive -welfare- from our city, while folks needing affordable housing go without?

Another not so brilliant idea: Provide similar tax incentives for existing apartment complexes to provide affordable housing (a small percentage of units per complex)
Most people in need of affordable housing aren't asking for brand new units in the Arts District, or even robotic parking in a luxury student complex. They simply need a safe, clean, affordable place to live.

What advice do you have for graduates?

It is important to HAVE A JOB, prior to looking for a better one. A person who earned a degree, but has no work experience is sometimes referred to as a person seeking a qualifying position....... or more commonly referred to as unemployed.
