When can Tenny street get plowed? I have used my personal truck to pull 3 cars all the way down the road and out onto jolly road just so they can keep going to their destination. It has been almost a ...week since we have had a plow down our road. YET you want me to keep the sidewalk clear every time it snows, how about when you plow the road I'll clean the sidewalk. Its ridiculous that you can not keep up with the snow. This is Michigan, we get snow. Plan a way to take care of it. See More

I always appreciate the salt trucks, but one of the drivers just about killed me today. At 1:30pm I had to merge on a highway near DeWitt and following behind one and staying to the left of it. As soo...n as the road opened up, the truck cut all the way across to the left and started spraying loose snow in my path. Luckily no cars were around because I spun out. I understand they have a job to do, but I would appreciate not being killed in the process. See More

Why did the snow plow only plow down the middle of my neighborhood hood street? I live on Crocus Ave and now you can only get one vehicle at a time down this street. Why didn’t they plow the WHOLE ROAD?

The potholes around this city are ridiculous. When are some of these major roadways like Cedar, Jolly, Pennsylvania and MLK going to get fixed? The city offices are going to start getting invoices for... vehicle repairs if something doesn't get done soon... See More

Tried talking to both the old and new mayors of Lansing about our homeless Veterans and maybe doing what there doing in Kansas City. There’s a non profit called Veterans Community Project building tin...y homes for homeless Veterans. But they prefer to send them to the VOA, which helps a little. But building a tiny home community would be a better transition for them. But nope, like I said let’s put it off on someone else. I see how my brothers and sister Veterans are rated in this city See More

Being a taxpayer for this fine city, you'd think money would go to fixing potholes... The roads are the worst I've seen in the 27 years of living here.

I think instead of posting on fb. We should be using our time and money properly to be fixing our roads. Like the million potholes across the Capitol of your beautiful state looks ridiculous.

We will be leaving as soon as we can. The bullies at lpd made that for sure. If I had lived in Mason where I came from this wouldnt be an issue. Lazy bullies. Don't buy here you will be sorry. I am.

Just so I'm clear. We are supposed to give you 48 hours + to clear our roads. But we are given 24 hours to clear our sidewalks? Even though it never stopped snowing?
I called and you said "well a l...ot of people walk and it can be dangerous". Very true. However, I am willing to bet more people drive my road than walk it. You can have 10 resident of a street call and complain about the road and you say sorry we will get to it eventually. But one person walking the sidewalk calls to complain and you go fine the homeowner as fast as possible. It's the holiday season, some may be out of town for the weekend.
It's you guys jumping on small stuff but letting the bigger issues go is why my family and so many others are moving out of this forsaken city.

I'm from Ohio and I've visited Lansing a couple of times recently to visit a friend and I really have grown to love the city. Having grown up in Ohio there's a ingrained distrust of all things Michiga...n but Lansing is a truly amazing city and has changed my perspective on the state as whole. There are lots of great things to see and do here, some of my favorites; visiting Old Town, driving along the Morris river, visiting your mall which closes surprisingly earlier than the ones in Ohio do which I found very strange the first time but has come to be something I enjoy. All in all a great place to visit and somewhere I'd love to live. See More

"Congratulations" Lansing has Officially joined the Ranks of those who believe it's 'ok' to Violate Federal Law and Endanger the Lives of the Citizens of Lansing, Michigan and the United States, by we...lcoming and offering Aid & Comfort to Felons, using Taxpayer Money and Violating their own Oath of Office!

Governor Rick Snyder, Attorney General Bill Schuette, Members of the Michigan State Legislature and Fellow Citizens, I call on you to Honor Your Oath of Office and Civic Duty and Immediately:

> De-fund the City of Lansing of all State Aid
> Prosecute and Remove from Office all those of the who have Willfully Violated their Oath of Office
> Sue the City of Lansing & Obtain an Injunction, prohibiting the implementation of this this Reckless Legislation

'All Enemies, Foreign AND Domestic!'
May God Preserve the Constitutional Republic of the United States!

Lansing COULD be a great city! We have lovely green spaces, vibrant neighborhoods, committed citizens. Unfortunately the current Mayor and his administration thinks the citizens who elected him are o...pposed to change because we don't want our parks destroyed, because we want to save them for our future generations. Virg Benero says he is just the "implementer" of a road through Ormond Park. If so, Mr. Mayor, then who is driving this massacre of parks? See More

Congrats on being a Sanctuary City. As if all the auto jobs leaving wasn't enough to kill your city economy I am sure this will bring in tourist money. I mean everyone wants to visit a city that does...n't believe in the laws right? Let's see how long this lasts when the feds cut off your $$. See More

Love it! A great place to call home. Downtown, Old Town, REO Town, and Michigan Avenue Corridor highlight this cool up-and-coming city. #LansingLove

Idiot mayor. As a cop who worked in a crime ridden city in South Cal. Every Dui crash that occurred with an illegal alien resulted in that illegal alien fleeing the scene. Illegals committed more crim...es than American citizens. Illegal stole, robbed, sold drugs in plain sight and formed gangs.
This udiot mayor is a complete imbecile!
