City Council accepts resignation of Curtis Snitker from council, appoints Tony Becker as Fire Chief

by Macie Hill

The regular Lansing City Council meeting was held Monday, January 7. Discussion centered around the adoption of the consent agenda, appointing a Fire Chief, a semi-final project payment, a parks report update, approving the resignation of a council member and a motion to appoint a new member.

The council appointed Tony Becker to the position of Fire Chief once again. Contract payment #9, a semi-final payment, was approved to be made in the amount of $11,415.22 for the South Road Bridge Project.

A Parks Board member was present at the meeting and explained that a piece of concrete that was approximately one foot by six feet in size has fallen away in the shallow end of the City swimming pool. The board has a preliminary $10,000 raised that will be used to resolve that problem as well as any other minor fixes that need to be done before the pool opens later this year.

The council made and seconded a motion to accept Curtis Snitker’s resignation request from his council seat. The council also agreed to hold a special meeting January 28 to appoint someone to that vacant seat.

Action on a request from William J. Burke to supplement the June 3, 2013 City Council Minutes was postponed to a future meeting.
