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 s...nowing?
I called and you said "well a lot 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.

Give tickets for not shovling driveway but can't do the road! When living in town. And have a snow plow guy just drives down and drives like a idiot sliding and goofing around. Plow the road!

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 Michigan 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

The majority don't want Lansing as a sanctuary city, or anywhere for that matter! We will take our money and tax refunds and spend them OUTSIDE OF LANSING if this gets passed!

This State and Lansing is run by a bunch of Libtards and Rinos. It has been left to rot like Flint. As you drive on crappy pot hole ridden streets to your 30 hr... a week shit job and listen to a Mayor on your radio who wants to demonize your Second Amendment Rights after Orlando. And all this City cares about is how many bars are open late nite? Whatta joke. See More

I don't care how fucked up the city nor the state may be by government officials. This is my city and my home. Wouldn't trade it for anything.

Lansing is one of the best cities to be a young person! Tons of fun events and bars make the city truly feel like home to a recent transplant from metro Detroit.

HEADS UP! We're monitoring a phone scam today from people claiming to be with the BWL and demanding money via pre-paid debit card, or they’ll turn... off service. The scam calls show up on caller I.D. from 866-289-2570.

Phone scammers are asking customers to acquire pre-paid debit cards, and return the call to make their payment to avoid service shut offs.

BWL customer service representatives will NEVER ask for payments through pre-paid debit cards, a wire service or for credit card information over the phone or in person. BWL customers have the option of “customer-initiated” credit card payments through a secure Intranet site or secure automated voice payment system.

BWL customer service representatives will also know the balance a customer owes and never need to ask the customer for it.

This scam has been reported to the Lansing Police Department. If customers do fall victim, they are urged to contact local law enforcement.
