Schedule for filling two vacancies laid out by East Lansing City Council


The East Lansing city council has laid out a schedule for filling two vacancies created by resignations last week.

Ruth Beier and Mark Meadows resigned during last week’s council meeting after a 3-to-2 vote to oust the city attorney.

The council has 30 days from those departures to choose two new council members.

Applications will be available starting today (TUESDAY). Public interviews are set for next week. Appointees will be named on Saturday, August 1st.

New Mayor Aaron Stephens expects a lot of good applicants.

“There are so many in our community that have served in the past, that have been activists, that have been involved in the community, that have been involved in their neighborhood, boards and commissions, or just really a voice for certain aspects of the community that I think are going to apply,” Stephens said.          

Jessy Gregg was appointed mayor pro-tem during Monday’s meeting.
