The Lansing City Council held its regular meeting Monday, June 3. Discussion centered around the adoption of the consent agenda, a public hearing, a street report update, posting City Marina docks for sale and approving raising annual salaries.

The consent agenda contained council meeting minutes for May 20, payment of claims, Park and Recreation Board meeting minutes from May 28, Meehan Memorial Public Library Board meeting minutes from April 16, a Kwik Star cigarette permit, River N Ridge liquor license renewal, Marina Board minutes from May 28, the transfer of $10,481.40 from Trust Fund Savings to Trust Fund Checking to reimburse for playground equipment and the transfer of $62.27 from Trust Fund Savings to Trust Fund Checking to reimburse for splash pad mailings. A motion was made and seconded to approve the adoption of the consent agenda.

There was a brief public hearing at the meeting concerning the Clear Creek Crossing Project. There were some questions about the project but not major concerns. The council made and seconded a motion to consider plans, specifications, contract documents and a construction estimate for the Clear Creek Crossing Project from engineering firm Fehr Graham.

The replacement or repair of the cement block wall located on Highway 9 near 1417 Main Street will be decided at a future meeting to allow the rest of the bids to be received and to discuss the best solution. During the Street Department report, the council discussed that the City is still looking for applicants for a part-time City worker.

The City of Lansing is offering up for bid several old boat docks from the City-owned marina. These docks were operational last season and are being replaced with metal docks. Acceptable bids can be submitted to Lansing City Hall.

A motion was made and seconded to approve Resolution #919 raising annual salaries and wages for non-union, union employees and department heads by 3.5%.
