Lansing aldermen will entertain public comments on the town’s proposed budget Monday evening and do the same for a proposed parking and sign ordinance Tuesday evening.
A public hearing is scheduled at 6 p.m. Monday, June 11 prior to the regular meeting at 7 p.m. at town hall to hear comments about the budget for 2012-13. The board of aldermen has proposed no increase in property tax rate or water/sewer rates in the $62,779 budget.
The budget was presented to the board at last month’s meeting by Finance Officer Beth Johnson. She said next year’s budget includes $600 added for a security system at town hall and $1,650 for elections expenditures, and lowers expenditures for advertising and professional services.
The board is expected to vote on the budget during the regular meeting on Monday.
On Tuesday, June 12, there will be a public hearing at Lansing Town Hall at 6 p.m. to gather citizen input on the town’s draft On-Street Parking and Parking Signage Ordinance. Town Attorney Jak Reeves is expected to be present to help answer questions of a legal nature regarding the proposed ordinance.
Questions regarding the public hearings should be directed to Town Clerk Bernice Prestwood at 384-3938.
Also at Monday’s regular meeting, Lansing resident Mark Goss is expected to be sworn in to serve on the board. Goss attended last month’s meeting and agreed to serve in a seat vacated by Rembert when he was elected mayor in 2011.
