[ARCHIVED] City Manager Presentations on Income Tax and Property Tax Reduction Ballot Proposals

EAST LANSING, Mich. – East Lansing City Manager George Lahanas is going out into the community to provide presentations on the City’s financial situation as well as facts about the income tax and property tax reduction ballot proposals.

Lahanas has provided more than 10 presentations so far and is scheduled to speak to several additional neighborhood associations, boards and commissions and community groups in the coming weeks. A schedule of upcoming meetings is available at

Other neighborhood associations and groups interested in requesting a presentation can contact the East Lansing City Manager’s office at (517) 319-6920. Presentations can also be requested by sending an email to Assistant to the City Manager Eilis Seide at

The income tax and property tax reduction proposals are slated to go on the November 7, 2017 General Election ballot. If both proposals pass, approximately $5 million would be generated annually, which would be used to maintain quality services to the community, invest in aging infrastructure, cover legacy costs and prevent additional, deep cuts to areas such as public safety, which makes up 64.8% of the City’s general fund expenditures. Community members can visit to find additional information about the two proposals, including an FAQ, an Income Tax Calculator and more.
