Latest Lansing City Council squabble, privatizing Water & Light

Feb 13, 2013

The Lansing city council is having an intense squabble involving technology and transparency.  Two unresolved issues appear to be at the heart of the dispute.  

First, did a city employee erase information from the city-issued laptop of council person Kathie Dunbar?  

Second, should a full council session involving “computer usage”-- presumably related to the incident -- have been closed to the public and the media?  

Lansing City Pulse Managing Editor Andy Balaskovitz has been following the story. He also updates a provocative exchange over whether the city should sell the Lansing Board of Water and Light.
