City OKs mower purchases
Lansing Parks and Recreation workers will have two new mowers to help manicure the city's parks.
During last week's Lansing City Council meeting, council members unanimously approved spending $26,638 to purchase two mowers - a 72-inch front deck model and a 54-inch zero turn mower - from Coleman Equipment, Bonner Springs, which submitted low bids on each: $18,250 for the 72-inch mower and $8,588 for the zero-turn mower.
"This is what we need to do the job right?" asked council member Kenneth Ketchum. "Sure is," replied Jason Crum, Parks and Recreation director.
In other business Thursday, the council:
¢ Approved 7-0 a replat of Lot 20 in the Carriage Hill subdivision. The replat reconfigures the lot into two buildable lots. Ketchum, who owns one of the lots, abstained.
¢ Met in executive session for 10 minutes to discuss confidential data relating to financial affairs of a second party. Afterward, the council voted unanimously to have Mayor Kenneth Bernard continue negotiations of second-party financing. City officials would not comment on the vote.
