With help from federal grant
funding, the University will soon

tout a new $46-million nanome-
chanical engineering lab com-
plex on North Campus, giving
researchers the opportunity to
pursue nanotechnology projects
in healthcare, biotechnology and
energy among other fields.
The Center of Excellence in
Nano Mechanical Science and
Engineering, which will be part-
ly funded by a $9.5-million grant
from the National Institute of
Standards and Technology, will
be a three-story complex featur-

ing 60 lab modules and rooms for
18 professors, according to a Uni-
versity press release distributed
yesterday.
The 62,800 square-foot com-
plex will be built adjacent to
the G.G. Brown Laboratories on
Hayward Street, accordingto the
release. Construction on the site
will begin in the spring of next
year and is projected to be com-
plete in May 2013.
The University invested $15
million in the complex with an

additional $6.5 million from the
College of Engineering and $15
million in private commitments,
leaving the NIST grant funding
to cover the remainder of the
construction costs.
Jack Hu, associate dean for
academic affairs in engineer-
ing and the leader behind the
NIST proposal, said in the
release that the complex will
serve as an appropriate environ-
ment to accommodate the pre-

ITS: Change to
printer server
infrastructure at fault
By CAITLIN HUSTON
Daily StaffReporter
Fumbling through a backpack,
trying to log on to a computer and

then frantically searching for a
stapler has become routine for stu-
dents who opt to print out pages at
the last minute. But when there is
a printer malfunction, students are
often met with an obstacle they
can't overcome.
Though there were an uncom-
mon number of printing problems
earlier this month on campus -
particularly at printing stations

in the Fishbowl in Angell Hall -
Information and Technology Ser-
vices said the problems have since
been corrected. ITS officials attri-
bute the printing difficulties to a
change in the print server infra-
structure that happened before the
fall term began.

Chronicle claims
council held closed
door meeting about
medical marijuana
By ELYANA TWIGGS
Daily StaffReporter
The Ann Arbor Chronicle
filed suit against the Ann Arbor
City Council earlier this month,
accusing the council of violating

the Michigan Open Meetings by
holding a closed-door meeting
regarding a medical marijuana
moratorium.
The Michigan Open Meetings
Act requires that the content of
certain meetings of government
bodies be available to the public.
According to Dave Askins,
co-owner of the Ann Arbor
Chronicle, the closed session
on July 19 made it "impossible"
for the public to know all of the
discussion on the moratorium,
adding that City Council didn't

give enough notice to prevent
the suit.
"The suit had considerable
merit, and I think it's clear from
the way that we documented the
timeline, that led to the lawsuit,"
Askins said. "We gave the City
Attorney and the City Council
every opportunity to remedy the
situation in a way that would not
have required a lawsuit."
During an Aug. 5 open meet-
ing, Council member Stephen
Rapundalo (D-Ward 2) referred
