LANSING, Mich. (AP) - Incoming members of a Lansing utility’s board won’t be seated in $1,500 chairs when they start their unpaid posts in July.

The Lansing State Journal reports (https://on.lsj.com/1Rn7RkP ) eight current Board of Water & Light commissioners considered the purchase of chairs for representatives of East Lansing, Meridian Township and Delta Township at the municipal utility’s headquarters complex.

Board Chairman David Price says commissioners decided Tuesday to save money by using chairs in storage at Grand Trunk Western Railroad depot, which is part of the headquarters.

They approved spending $21,400 to accommodate the three new non-voting board members. The money includes up to $15,900 to extend a horseshoe-shaped dais used for its general meetings and $5,500 for a table that will be used for its committee of the whole meetings.
