Lansing voters head to the polls next week to decide who will occupy four seats on the city council. They’ll also determine a ballot proposal involving city contracts.

The Lansing City Council will officially be back at full strength tonight, when it swears in its newest member.  Vincent Delgado was appointed to the council Thursday night in a 6 to 1 vote.  He’ll finish the current term vacated by Derrick Quinney, who stepped down after becoming the new Ingham County Register of Deeds.

A’Lynne Boles is currently serving as president of the Lansing City Council.  It’s her third tenure as president, and she's in her seventh year on the council.

Boles represents the city’s third ward, which covers the southwest part of Lansing.

Lately, the city council has been more frequently involved in changes at the city-owned Board of Water and Light.

On Friday, A'Lynne Boles joined us to talk about those changes and other city issues.  Voters will decide whether to expand the board by three non-voting members.  That proposal could be approved in November.
