Lansing's Mayor-elect Virg Bernero and outgoing Mayor Tony Benavides met behind closed doors Monday to discuss a transition plan. It was their first meeting since last Tuesday's election.
Former Lansing Mayor and current Director of Bernero's transition team David Hollister as well as David Wiener, Mayor Benavides' Executive Assistant, were present, too.
The city's budget was discussed and plans were outlined for meeting with department heads. Benavides and Wiener will also make briefings, on a range of city topics, available by the end of the week.
