by Macie Hill

The Lansing City Council met in a brief regular session Monday, November 20. Discussion centered around interviewing for a new city police officer, discussing the choosing of a financial institution for a vehicle loan for the police department, and local Iowa House of Representatives candidate Andy Kelleher asking the council about issues that need to be addressed in Lansing.

The council discussed the choice of New Albin Savings Bank as the financial institution regarding a loan for a new vehicle for the police department. This decision will be finalized during the next regular council session.

The City will be interviewing three potential officers to fill the position for the new city police officer by the end of December.

Andy Kelleher, a candidate running for District 56 of the Iowa House of Representatives, was present at the meeting and explained how he has been attending area meetings and asking different councils what kind of legislation they would like to see at the State level. He asked the Lansing City Council what specific issues Lansing has that they would like to see addressed. Mayor Mike Brennan expressed his opinion by saying he wished smaller schools had more funding and that smaller cities could receive more money to help with the maintenance of local infrastructure.
