Should Lawrence Say Yes to New Police Facility?

LAWRENCE POLICE YES SIGN3A yard sign at 6th and Michigan, encouraging a "yes" vote on the November 4 ballot issue that would increase the local sales tax to pay for a new Lawrence police center.

Next week, voters in Lawrence will decide whether to approve an increase in the local sales tax to finance construction of a new police center. The price tag for the proposed facility is nearly $26 million. The Lawrence City Commission and the police department are hoping voters say yes at the polls. Others say they support the police... but not this plan. KPR's J. Schafer has more.

Lawrence voters will decide on November 4th whether to approve a .20% increase in the city sales tax to pay for a $26 million police facility. The new law enforcement center would be located east of Hallmark Cards, south of the Kansas Turnpike and just north of the district offices for Lawrence public schools.
