LAWRENCE, Kan. — A power issue forced City Hall and City Hall Riverfront in Lawrence to close for the remainder of the day.

The offices include utility billing customer service, solid waste customer service, the planner of the day and Municipal Court.

The power outage also impacts internet service, meaning no one in the building could receive phone calls.

It also forced the city to postpone the proposed government restructure meeting scheduled for Tuesday evening. It is rescheduled for next Tuesday, May 31 at 6 p.m. Those who registered for the Zoom do not need to re-register.

City leaders said most other city services and departments are unaffected and will run as normal today, including solid waste collection, Lawrence transit, and Parks and Recreation.

The city hopes the issue will be fixed so the buildings can open for normal hours Wednesday.
