East Lansing City Council approves future vote on income tax

EAST LANSING, MI (WLNS) – The East Lansing City Council just passed an ordinance that will allow for a future vote on a city income tax.

The regularly scheduled meeting got started after 10 p.m. Tuesday, after the council spent several hours discussing the details of the multi-million dollar Center City project.

Just after 11 p.m. the Council voted to put the question of an income tax for those people who live and work in East Lansing on the November ballot.

It is expected that an income tax boost will provide relief for the revenue shortfall issues facing the city.
