Lansing City Council holds brief regular session; Pool hopes to open in two to three weeks

by Macie Hill

Monday, June 5 the Lansing City Council met in its regular session. Discussion circled around an ATV ordinance, hiring new city lawn mowers, dust control, cutting down a tree at Mount Hosmer, and information about the Lansing Swimming Pool.

The Allamakee ATV Club attended the meeting inquiring as to whether or not the City of Lansing will be getting a new ATV ordinance. All council members present agreed that the council needs more time to discuss all of the options in order to make a decision. The ATV club will be back for the July 3 meeting for an answer.

Discussion was held in regard to the need to hire an individual to mow lawn for the City. Four new applications were received and a decision to hire someone will be made in the near future.

It was also discussed that dust control is needed on some of the gravel roads in Lansing before the community's annual Fish Days celebration in August. The council made the decision to hire Welch Feed and LP Gas in Waukon to do the job for 50 cents per gallon of lignin sulfonate product that the company uses for dust control.

There is a tree that did not leaf out on Mount Hosmer that is going to be cut down to avoid any branches falling on the shelter house located nearby. The City will be calling a few different businesses to see who is able to do the required job and when it can get done.

The City of Lansing swimming pool will be opening within the next two to three weeks, depending on when the new hired lifeguards have completed the certification class.
