LANSING, Mich. — Lansing City Council meetings will begin to look a little more normal starting April 12.
At least some council members will be present in the council chambers, though some will likely participate virtually, and there will be limited seating for the public. Social distancing and masks will be enforced.
At-Large Councilwoman Patricia Spitzley thinks the hybrid model is a good way to go. She said some people are not comfortable with in-person meetings, and there are some who don't have internet access.
"So having the hybrid model that allows some folks to be in person allows people who may not of had the opportunity to participate in city government in the past because of the pandemic. It allows them the opportunity to come down and be in the chambers and comment on things that are important to them," Spitzley said.
