postheadericon 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.

villageoffice2014moving_400Employees were still moving in this week, making trip after trip from the old Village Office building to the new.

villageoffice2014mtgroom_400As you walk in the front door you are in the new municipal meeting room, amply lit by a wall of windows and clearstory windows above. Two large TV screens will display presentations for the Board of Trustees, Planning Board and other meetings.

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.

villageoffice2014kitchen_400The old village office had a kitchen, sort of -- it was a counter in the meeting room. The new hall has a better kitchen in its own space.

Pet of the Week

angola

Angola is a stunning four year old who would be delighted to meet you! Although she knows this is a terrific place if one has to be given up for adoption, she misses the amenities of a home, like the sofas, beds to snooze on, toys, and - most important - people to converse with, play with, and purr to.  Windows looking out on the passing scene would be delightful for Angola - especially if you have birds and perhaps chipmunks living on your property. If she’s won your heart, please visit her today! She would prefer to be your only kitty, but she has such a big heart and personality you won't need any more four-legged friends! If you have other critters at home - dog or cat - you must be prepared to do a very slow introduction with Angola. She is a recent mom and still feeling protective.
