Property Management

Property Management Division

Property Management Division was created to provide oversight in managing the City of Lansing's assets such as properties and buildings. The Division is responsible for maintaining about 750 City owned properties and 223 buildings. This included making recommendations to the administration on which properties to purchase or sell, as well as recommendations for maintenance or repair of buildings.

The Property Management Division is comprised of the Building Maintenance Group and the Building Services Group.

  • The Building Maintenance Group is made up of licensed trade personnel that facilitate maintenance activities and repairs. They also work with contractors to complete large repairs to acceptable standards.
  • The Building Services Group is made up of our janitorial staff and outside contractors that continue to assist in maintaining of buildings and properties.

The Property Maintenance Division is also responsible for facility operations of special events such as the Common Ground Music Festival, Silver Bells in the City, Old Town Festivals and many annual special events. This includes providing power, lights, water, sewer, and other work necessary to make the special events happen and to be a success.

The Division also works with other City of Lansing departments, other outside governmental agencies, private companies or businesses to make the special events a success for all participants.

The Division also evaluates the City's energy usage and makes recommendations to reduce our energy consumption, use alternative fueled equipment, influence designs in green roofs and green buildings, purchase energy star rated equipment, and various other earth friendly actions.

This Division also manages the City identification card system, building alarm systems, security services, and environmental issues related to properties.

The Division staff is available 24 hours a day for emergencies.
