New series:
Understanding Lansing

by Melanie Jongsma

LANSING, Ill. (January 2018) – If you’ve ever wondered why Lansing has an airport, or what a Trustee does, or how many people work at Village Hall, you are not alone. Though Lansing has maintained a small-town atmosphere in our neighborhoods and businesses, there is a complex network of people and positions who are involved in day-to-day operations.

The Lansing Journal is beginning this “Understanding Lansing” series as a guide for residents who want to see the key roles and how they work together.

Org chart

In the January 3 print version of The Lansing Journal, we presented an org chart showing the names and positions that are most familiar to most Lansing residents. That chart is difficult to recreate online in a way that is easy to view on devices of all sizes and still legible.

We’ve resized the chart into a two-page PDF that can be printed on 8.5×11″ paper, for those who would like to print their own copy at home:

And here’s a smaller version of the chart without the details included in the larger version:
Understanding LansingOur goal is to provide information about each of these positions, and make the individual parts linkable, so you can always find the information you’re interested in.

Let us know

We are hoping to make this series as useful as possible, so if there’s something particular you want to know about Lansing, please let us know!
