OLD TOWN LANSING – Members of the Lansing City Council Committee on Ways and Means discussed the possibility of a new drain project at a meeting on Friday, March 14, 2014. The meeting

The discussion began with a resolution that approved a list of bridges to be sent to the Michigan Department of Transportation that the city believes need repairs, maintenance or replacement. The list was to apply to funding for the 2017 fiscal year. Carol Wood, chair of the Committee on Ways and Means, said the state only has a limited amount of money to put toward bridges each year. Wood said they would not all receive the funding they requested from the state.
