The first half of this week’s City Council meeting was dedicated to a joint meeting with the East Lansing Public Schools Board of Education and was held at the Hannah Community Center. The meeting consisted largely of presentations and involved no apparent points of disagreement among or between the two governing bodies. Topics included the future of the Red Cedar School, enrollment levels, and the proposed City Charter amendment on public land sales.
