Bond-related issues top joint meeting

February 17, 2005

Lansing City Council and School Board members will get together this evening for a study session to discuss issues related to the school district's April bond election.

Superintendent Randal Bagby said at the School Board meeting Tuesday that the board would discuss with the city potential uses for facilities that may be vacated if the school bond were to pass.

The bond must pass before the board is able to enter into agreements or sign contracts, Bagby said.

The meeting will be at 6:30 p.m. in the council chambers at City Hall, 800 First Terrace. It will be a study session preceding the regular council meeting, which begins at 7 p.m.

Here's the agenda for the council meeting:

Consent agenda:

Consider minutes from the Jan. 27 special meeting and the Feb. 3 regular meeting.

Regular agenda:

Hear a briefing on the Parks and Recreation basketball program.
