City terminates funding for Lansing Neighborhood Council after scathing audit report
WEDNESDAY, Aug. 6 — The Bernero administration has terminated all funding to the Lansing Neighborhood Council after an audit found “serious irregularities in the accounting and cash management practices.”
The action has effectively killed the 34-year-old nonprofit formed to coordinate and support the activities of neighborhood organizations. It provides a number of services on behalf of the city, such as trash cleanup and building board-ups. It receives at least $54,000 a year.
