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 Sarah Post

prada Beautiful Prada arrived at the shelter with four young offspring; the kittens were taken to a space of their own, since all five felines were suffering from what we would call colds. Prada is recovering well, and is now ready to consider moving to her Purr-Ever home. Given her less-than-wonderful recent history, she will likely be very happy to be with people - or one person - who will make a fuss over her and keep her supplied with good food, entertaining toys, perhaps a bird feeder close to a window where an interested feline could spend some time watching the diners and swishing her tail in appreciation. Come winter, she might enjoy watching movies on the TV with you, or even sports. And, isn't she just beautiful? The best decoration for a loving home!
