Security Increased At City Hall Meetings

KSAL StaffJanuary 24, 2014

Security has been increased at Lawrence City Hall after some city commission members received threatening emails.

Commissioner Bob Schumm says the emails arrived about three weeks ago from a resident upset with a proposed rental licensing and inspection program. He says the threats included going to commission members’ homes with a gun.

Two uniformed police officers now attend commission meetings, which used to have only one officer attending. It’s unclear if the changes are permanent but Mayor Mike Dever says he expects the changes to be temporary.

The commission is scheduled to take a key vote on the rental licensing and inspection program at its Feb. 4 meeting.

Police have contacted the person who sent the email. No charges have been filed.
