City to discuss newspaper, alley improvements at study session

April 28, 2005

The Lansing City Council will meet for a study session tonight to hear a presentation by the Lansing Current about naming the city's official newspaper and to discuss alley improvements throughout the city.

The study session begins at 7 p.m. at City Hall, 800 First Terrace.

The Current, which began publishing a weekly newspaper in Lansing in November, will ask the council to consider approving a charter ordinance that would allow the city to use a newspaper of unpaid circulation as its official paper. Governing entities use their official publications to publish legal notices as required by state law. Kansas requires that official publications have a paid circulation base, though a city can use its home rule powers to use a free publication as its official newspaper.

The alley improvement discussion comes on the heels of a directive from the City Council earlier this year seeking more information about the cost of such an undertaking.

No action will be taken at the study session.
