If I didn't predict enough in the City Pulse article towards the end where I said sometimes it seems that Lansing would like to be East Lansing and vice versa, WILX reported last night that Virg Bernero has been talking now about a possible merge between the cities. East Lansing's mayor, Sam Singh, says that could possibly be a decade off.
Singh is waiting for Lansing to get under control its pensions and other liabilities first.
Virg would like to see this done within the next few years, but Singh is open to the conversation. Any such event would require voter approval.

There is also the video portion as well.
