Public Meeting Disclosure

The East Lansing City Council is committed to conducting their affairs in an ethical, open and transparent manner. Policy Resolution 2012-1 (PDF) requires the disclosure of meetings between individual City Council members and developers, vendors, contractors, applicants or union staff representatives who have active business with the City or are planning to engage in business with the City that would require Council action. The meeting will be disclosed within 1 calendar week or prior to taking any action on the matter discussed, whichever is sooner. This policy does not apply to meetings that are subject to the Open Meetings Act, phone conversations, mail, email communications or meetings in which no active or proposed business that would require Council action is discussed.
