Lansing City Council approves first reading of ATV ordinance, chooses firm to follow through on radium treatment plan for City's water supply at regular Monday session

by Macie Hill

The Lansing City Council meeting was held Monday, August 21. Discussion centered around Milty's putting tables outside its business, ATV ordinance information, S&S Rentals buying property, a radium treatment study timeline, and city street light information.

Local restaurant Milty’s proposed having three to four bistro tables sitting outside the business on the sidewalk. The members of the council discussed the dimensions of the tables that would be placed and the sidewalk itself, and decided that the tables would not take up too much of the sidewalk and can be put out there.

The first reading of the new ATV ordinance was read at Monday's meeting and the second and third readings will be read during the next two meetings. The ordinance will only be good for one year. When that time is reached, the council will discuss and review how the first year went and edit anything that needs to be changed from there.

S&S Rentals brought up a discussion regarding the business eventually wanting to purchase the Wall Street levee lot. After considering different options, the council decided to get an appraisal on the property and will proceed from there.

​A firm has been chosen to follow through with a radium treatment plan for the City's water system after discussion took place over all of the different options. The firm is planning to have the whole study complete by the end of this year.

Multiple street lights are out throughout the town and more and more are starting to go out. Mayor Mike Brennan stated that the matter may involve taking up some of  the sidewalk to address, and he felt it would be better to get everything fixed sooner rather than waiting until later to address the issue.
