The regular meeting of the Lansing City Council was held Tuesday, September 8 due to the Labor Day holiday falling on the council’s usual meeting date of Monday, September 7. Meeting discussion centered around the consent agenda, People Service update, clerk’s report, marina report, and splash pad report.

The consent agenda consisted of council meeting minutes from August 17, payment of claims, Marina Board minutes from August 31, Parks minutes from August 2 and a liquor license for the Lansing Fire Department. A motion was made and seconded to approve the consent agenda.

A motion was made and seconded to approve the removal of four dead trees located near the City swimming pool. Approval was also given to schedule a public hearing for the October 5 city council meeting at 7 p.m. to discuss an amendment to the fiscal year 2021 city budget.

A public hearing was also held during the meeting in regard to the Floodplain Management Ordinance for the City of Lansing, which was read aloud by Mayor Kyle Walleser. With no comments received at City Hall prior to the public hearing and no comments being presented during the meeting, the public hearing was closed and a motion was made and seconded to approve the first reading of the flood plain ordinance. A motion was also made and approved to waive the second and third readings of the Floodplain Management Ordinance.

A motion was made and seconded to approve  the bid received by Mauss Electric for electrical work at the City Marina. The appointment of Bob Hosch to the City of Lansing Marina Board was also approved.

As the summer is coming to an end, the splash pad will soon be closing. The splash pad in Lansing is set to close October 1.
