Lansing City Council calls special meeting; city attorney questions on agenda

LANSING, Mich (WLNS) – Some high-profile issues will be addressed by the Lansing City Council during a special meeting next week.

Council members will meet next Monday at 5:00 p.m. to discuss questions they have on the ongoing City Attorney controversy.

In past meetings council members and the public have been very vocal in asking questions on the details of former city attorney Janene McIntyre’s departure from her position.

They want to know why McIntyre was given a six-figure payout; and want to see her contract. That document has not been available yet.

Some council members requested that representatives from Dykema Gossett, the law firm that provided legal advice to the city regarding McIntyre’s separation agreement, be at the city council meeting to answer any questions the council may have.

Council member Adam Hussain is hoping representatives from Dykema Gossett will be available at the May 2 Committee of the Whole meeting that will immediately follow the 5:00 p.m. special meeting.

It is expected that the council will set a May 2 public hearing on the moratorium on Medical Marijuana Facilities.

Last week Lansing mayor Virg Bernero called for a moratorium on medical marijuana dispensaries in the city and set regulations for the rapidly expanding businesses.
