Lansing City Council approves hirings for summer help, hears swimming pool update

by Macie Hill

The regular meeting of the Lansing City Council was held Tuesday, May 8, a day later than usual due to a scheduling conflict. Discussion centered around the second reading of Ordinance #199, a part-time groundskeeping and maintenance position being filled, hiring lifeguards for the Lansing Swimming Pool, and a public hearing date scheduled to discuss the city budget.

The second reading of Ordinance #199, which repeals Ordinance #124 and starts a new 25-year franchise agreement with Interstate Power, was read at the meeting. The council also approved the hiring of Terry Hennessy as a part-time grounds and maintenance worker for up to 10 hours a week, if needed.

Twelve lifeguards have been hired by the City for the Lansing Swimming Pool. The returning lifeguards from the previous year will be given a $.25 raise and the starting lifeguards will be paid $8.50. The pool has been drained and the City workers are just waiting on the weather to start the painting. When they have finished, the pool will be ready to open.

There will be a public hearing Monday, May 21 at 7 p.m. for an amendment of the fiscal-year 2018 City Budget.
