For 33 years, an East Lansing City ordinance has required that any establishment serving alcohol must take in at least 50% of its revenue from food sales. At last night's discussion-only meeting, City Council agreed to revisit the rule. Jessy Gregg reports.
At Council last night, in light of national events, the mayor reminded the community of the City's civil rights policy, and various long-serving members of the community were recognized for their service.
A new $132 million Center City District redevelopment proposal is in the approval-process queue for East Lansing, putting it ahead of the Park District redevelopment proposal. For which has the mayor shown a preference? And could it mean the blight will be prolonged?

Having obtained two key documents in the deal-making, ELi finds the City of East Lansing and the Park District developer appear far apart on a number of key issues in the proposal negotiations. But the parties are talking.
