LANSING, Mich. (WLNS) – Lansing voters will weigh in on funding for public safety and road repairs when they cast their ballots in November.
In a special session Monday night, the Lansing City Council voted in favor of putting the millage renewal before voters.
The millage will provide funds for Lansing’s police and fire departments.
But it will also give more funding for road and sidewalk repair.
Mayor Virg Bernero wanted those provisions added to the millage.
He says funding from the state hasn’t been enough to keep up with the city’s crumbling roads and sidewalks.
This isn’t a new millage, so property taxes will stay the same.
