Lansing City Council postpones decision on purchase of new back hoe, schedules future consideration for City Marina docks

by Macie Hill

The Lansing City Council met in its regular session Monday, October 1. Discussion during the meeting centered around postponing the purchase of a back hoe previously considered at an earlier meeting and discussing further consideration of dock quotes received for the City Marina.

The purchase of the new back hoe for City departments will be postponed until the next regular council meeting, which is scheduled for October 15. The postponement was decided upon in order for the council members to do more research on the machine the City is considering purchasing.

At that regular meeting scheduled for October 15, the council will also set a public hearing date for November 5 to discuss dock quotes and the reverse bond referendum process. After that November 5 meeting there will be the regular meeting scheduled for November 19 and an additional special meeting scheduled solely to approve spending the money on the docks. That special meeting has been tentatively scheduled for Wednesday, November 21 at 7 p.m.
