New Village Hall is Open For Business

 

villageoffice2014_120If you have business at the Village of Lansing the address is the same, but the building is new.  Village employees moved into the completed $1,079,644 Village Hall this week.  The 2,662 square foot office building includes offices for the Village Clerk, Code Enforcement, and DPW, a public meeting room and an office for the Mayor and Planning Board Chairman.

villageoffice2014codes_400One of the biggest, escalating problems with the old Code Enforcement office was storage space. Blue prints, drawings, proposals all littered the crowded space. That will not be a problem in Code Enforcement/Zoning Officer Marty Moseley's new office, which has plenty of space for storage and meetings.

Pet of the Week

by Ashley Fleming

cartercollagev2A donor has challenged us with a pledge of $1,000 if we find a good home for Carter before the end of the month! He has been in the shelter for 6 months and everyone here knows he deserves a wonderful home! Carter is an adult dog (BONUS! Already potty trained!) of moderate energy level. While he is content with long and quiet walks, he has been known to engage in raucously silly play sessions any time he's offered the opportunity (a fenced in yard would be wonderful, but is not a requirement for adoption). When walked by a handler with consistent expectations, his leash manners are wonderful for a dog his size. After a good romp, Carter craves nothing more than to flop on the nearest available lap and soak up as many tickles as scratches as possible.
