Lansing City Council approves more summer hires, discusses pandemic concerns for marina

by Alexis Johnson

The regular meeting of the Lansing City Council was held Monday, April 20. The discussion centered around the consent agenda, transfer of funds, Marina report and Parks report.

Resolution #938 is a resolution approving the transfer of funds from the restricted gifts special revenue fund to the general fund. A motion was made and seconded to approve the transfer of funds to help finance the Splash Pad project.

With the current COVID-19 pandemic, the council discussed concerns regarding the City Marina. When the marina opens up May 1 the public bathrooms will remain closed due to the virus. New guidelines from the State of Iowa are now in place in this area to keep a six-foot distance from anyone who is not in a person’s own household.

The guidelines are dependent upon what the State decides is necessary following the current April 30 deadline expiration.

MaKayla Manning has been hired to become the pool manager this summer, with Madison Galema being hired as the assistant. Kerry Hogan was hired to be the assistant baseball coach. New signage will be placed by the Splash Pad recognizing the people and companies who donated to make the Splash Pad possible. The City Pool resurfacing project will start next Monday, April 27, weather permitting. A motion was made and seconded to approve the Parks report.
