LANSING, Mich. (WLNS)– The fate of Lansing’s parks rests with the voters.
Tuesday, voters in Ingham, Clinton and Eaton counties will head to the polls to determine if taxpayers should continue to pay for operating, maintaining and improving Lansing’s parks and recreation system.
The proposed renewal would be for one mill; that’s equivalent to $100 on $100,000 of taxable real and personal property.
The renewed rate would take effect July 1, 2016 and run for five years.
Voters will also narrow down the list of ten city council candidates to four city council members.
Harold Leeman Jr., Carol Wood, Mary Ann Prince, Patricia Spitzley and Emily Dievendorf are all vying for two city council member-at-large seats.
Adam Hussain, A’Lynne Boles and Ryan Earl are all running for the lone open seat in Lansing’s Ward 3.
Since they are the only two candidates for the Ward 1 seat, Jody Washington and Shelley Davis Mielock will move on to the general election in November.
The polls will be open 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Tuesday.
