Lansing City Council hears tree maintenance plan for City Parks, hires more Summer Rec help

by Alexis Johnson

The regular meeting of the Lansing City Council was held Monday, April 19 at Lansing City Hall. Discussion centered around the consent agenda, citizens action, Streets report and Parks report.

Citizens action consisted of Tom Burke’s tree maintenance plan for trees in City of Lansing parks. He is interested in cleaning up some surrounding trees as well as planting some other trees such as the previous tree at the ball field that was taken down a couple years ago. A motion was made and seconded to approve Tom Burke’s plan for City Park trees. The council also reviewed and considered Resolution #953, which deals with Andrew Burke’s proposed real estate subdivision plot.

City of Lansing park bathrooms have been opened for the season. The Street Department is also looking to put an advertisement in the newspaper for anyone interested in resurfacing selected city streets. Makayla Walleser was hired as summer recreation softball assistant coach, and Tom Troendle was also hired as assistant baseball coach for the summer recreation program.

Lansing City Hall will be closed this Friday, April 23.
