Council to deliver annual evaluation to city administrator
City administrator Mike Smith will learn the results of his annual evaluation at this week's meeting of the Lansing City Council.
The city's top administrator since 1999, Smith is in charge of the city work force and an annual operating budget in excess of $7 million. He serves at the pleasure of the council and the mayor.
Council members seemed pleased with Smith's performance a year ago. After last year's evaluation, Mayor Kenneth Bernard said of Smith, "He's doing fine on leadership. He's doing well on budgeting. : He actually does well on all areas of his job. He's got good relations with the employees and the citizens. He's responsive to the council."
Much of the discussion about Smith is expected to take place in executive session at tonight's meeting, which starts at 7 p.m. at City Hall, 800 First Terrace.
