City study session called off
A Lansing City Council study session to discuss the extension of South Bittersweet Street to West Mary Street originally scheduled for tonight has been called off.
Karen Logan, city clerk, said the meeting was being postponed because city officials had been unsuccessful in trying to get more information about a joint venture with the school district. No makeup for the meeting had been scheduled as of Thursday morning.
Extension of the street has been discussed by the Lansing School Board as a possible component of a school bond issue under consideration. The school board has talked about the need to extend Bittersweet south from the existing middle school to West Mary Street, where the board would like to build a new K-5 elementary school.
An architect has estimated the cost of the street project around $650,000.
