Seating Arrangements Cause Uproar In Lansing City Council

Posted: Updated:

LANSING, Mich. (WLNS) - Uproar over new seating arrangements at Lansing City Council Meetings is causing some serious backlash among council members.

Our media partners at the Lansing City Pulse report Council President A'lynne Boles moved seats around to be closer to the vice president, but city officials say the city clerk and the city attorney aren't happy about it. The city attorney apparently even issued an opinion as to why seats can't change without a vote.

Council Member Jody Washington calls the whole issue "childish" and says they need to move on to issues that matter.

"This is the kind of foolishness that has gone on in council for two years. You want to know why we can't get anything done? Because this is what goes on. Frankly, I'm tired of it. These are grown people. They need to behave like grown people, and we need to get on with the business we were elected to do," said Washington.

Washington says it's a waste of resources to have the city attorney ruling on what she calls "issues of ego."
