** East Lansing City Council Oaths of Office to Take Place on Tuesday, Nov. 9
------------------------------------------------------------

The City of East Lansing’s November 2, 2021 General Election results have been certified by the Ingham County Board of Canvassers and the administration of the oath of office for the newly-elected East Lansing City Councilmembers will take place next week.

East Lansing City Clerk Jennifer Shuster will administer the oath of office to the City Councilmembers-elect at Council’s meeting on Tuesday, Nov. 9 at 7 p.m. at the East Lansing Hannah Community Center, 819 Abbot Road. The City Councilmembers-elect are Ron Bacon, George Brookover and Dana Watson.

Bacon and Watson are the first two African Americans to be elected to the East Lansing City Council in its history.

In 2020, Bacon and Watson were appointed to fill vacant positions on City Council and made history by becoming the first two African Americans to serve on Council since the 1970’s. The first African American to serve on the East Lansing City Council was Thelma Evans, who was appointed in 1973 to serve out an unexpired term on Council.

Following the oath of office, the East Lansing City Council will elect the Mayor and Mayor Pro Tem and the oath of office will be administered for those leadership positions.

All City Council meetings are open to the public and are livestreamed and can be played back via the City’s public meeting portal: https://cityofeastlansing.civicweb.net/Portal/. If attending the meeting in person, masks are required.


** City of East Lansing Addresses Illegal, Dangerous Conduct Following MSU vs. Michigan Game
------------------------------------------------------------

Following the Michigan State University vs. University of Michigan football game last Saturday, Oct. 30, the East Lansing Police Department (ELPD) and East Lansing Fire Department (ELFD) responded to multiple calls of fires, property damage, blocked streets and incapacitated individuals in the community.

“While there were many who celebrated the Spartan win this past weekend in a responsible way, we are disappointed that so many individuals engaged in destructive, dangerous and illegal behavior following the game,” said East Lansing City Manager George Lahanas. “These unlawful behaviors are not only extremely dangerous, but they unnecessarily overburden our critical emergency services on busy game days and overshadow great Spartan victories. Any notions that these unlawful behaviors are acceptable traditions are wrong.”

ELPD will be pursuing charges against identified individuals who committed crimes following the game and anyone with information, photos and/or videos is encouraged to contact ELPD Sgt. Adam Park at (517) 319-6834 or apark@cityofeastlansing.com (mailto:apark@cityofeastlansing.com) . If the public knows the identities of any of the subjects in ELPD's latest Facebook post (https://www.facebook.com/EastLansingPD/posts/246362570859798) , they are also encouraged to contact Sgt. Park.

Throughout the day on Oct. 30, ELPD had a total of 349 calls for service and there were 20 citations issued and five arrests made. From 7:30 a.m. on Oct. 30 to 7:30 a.m. on Oct. 31, ELFD had a total of 142 call for service, including 79 EMS calls, 57 fire calls (ELFD received assistance from ELPD for several of these calls), 20 fire alarm calls, two elevator rescues, 26 truck/squad medic assists and six mutual aid calls. The property damage in the community included, but was not limited to a vehicle that was overturned and destroyed in the alley in the 200 block of Cedar Street.

Assisting agencies throughout the weekend included the Lansing Police Department, MSU Police and Public Safety, Michigan State Police, the Meridian Township Police Department and the Ingham County Sheriff’s Office.

“The East Lansing Police Department was adequately prepared for a celebration following MSU’s big win over Michigan. Unfortunately, our peacekeeping efforts had to be shifted to responding to several couch fires in the roadway and large crowds that were blocking streets, which resulted in major safety concerns and traffic issues,” said East Lansing Police Chief Kim Johnson. “The number of reported fires also required the 911 dispatch center to have to separate the calls to our police and fire frequencies, resulting in our firefighters having to respond to several fires without police security. This was a very serious safety issue for our emergency responders. Setting fires and causing malicious destruction of property is a totally unacceptable way for Spartans and Spartan fans to celebrate big wins. We will be seeking the fullest extent of charges for those individuals who have been captured in photos and videos setting fires and causing damage to other people’s property.”

** City Seeks Applicants for 2022 East Lansing Emerging Leaders Program
------------------------------------------------------------

The City of East Lansing is currently accepting applications for its 2022 East Lansing Emerging Leaders Program.

The application, available online at www.cityofeastlansing.com/emergingleaders, must be submitted by Monday, Dec. 6 for consideration.

The East Lansing Emerging Leaders Program is a year-long course in civic engagement designed to support today’s emerging leaders. Participants will meet monthly, from January through November, and the courses will be taught by a range of local business, community and government leaders.

Participants of the 2022 program will hone leadership and public service skills by learning about a variety of course topics, including economic and cultural development, emergency response, municipal finance and more. Many past graduates have gone on to serve as active members of neighborhood associations, City boards and commissions and even the East Lansing City Council.

“The Emerging Leaders Program was created to educate citizens about the importance of local government and civic engagement,” said East Lansing City Manager George Lahanas. “It is our hope that the 2022 participants will be inspired to take an active role in local government and the East Lansing community upon graduating from the program.”

All applicants must be residents of the City of East Lansing (either homeowner or renter) and must be 18 years of age or older. Applicants cannot be running for, or currently serving in, an elected office.

Interested applicants should note that a $55 fee will be charged to those accepted to the program to help offset program costs. Scholarships will be available for those who are eligible. Interested community members can learn more at www.cityofeastlansing.com/emergingleaders.

** Northern Tail Dog Park to be Closed for the 2021-2022 Winter Season
------------------------------------------------------------

Community members are reminded that the City of East Lansing’s Northern Tail Dog Park, located at 6400 Abbot Road, will be closed over the 2021-2022 winter season. The park is scheduled to close on November 29, 2021 and is scheduled to re-open on April 4, 2022, weather permitting.

The purpose for the seasonal closure of the Northern Tail Dog Park is to prevent considerable wear and tear to park grounds, which has occurred over past winter seasons due to park use during freeze-thaw periods and periods when the soil is wet and muddy.

The City has completed extensive work to improve drainage and restore grass at the park. The winter closure of the Northern Tail Dog Park, like the winter closures of many other recreational facilities in the East Lansing community, reduces the wear and tear of the park grounds.

Signs will be installed at the park to notify park users of the upcoming seasonal closure.
