In the face of ongoing, significant financial challenges, East Lansing City Council will be hosting community engagement meetings to gather public input on the City of East Lansing’s budget priorities this January.
The meetings, facilitated by Public Sector Consultants, will take place on the following dates at the East Lansing Hannah Community Center, 819 Abbot Road:
- Wednesday, Jan. 10 from 6-8 p.m. in the Executive Conference Room
- Thursday, Jan. 18 from 7-9 p.m. in the Banquet Hall
“These meetings will provide East Lansing residents with an opportunity to share their input as we look to prioritize City services with a goal of financial sustainability,” said East Lansing Mayor Mark Meadows. “We as a Council will be continuing to look at a number of options to address the City’s financial challenges and we would like to hear from the community on what type of City government they want in the future. We invite all residents to join us for these important conversations about the future of our community.”
Community members do not need to attend both meetings, as they will follow the same format and the same information will be shared. Two meetings are being held on different dates to accommodate community members’ schedules.
