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.

East Lansing Public Library, 950 Abbot Road

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.
