PRESS RELEASE

Public Comments Being Sought on Proposed Millage Increase

On Tuesday, June 24, 2014 the City Commission will consider placing a proposal on the November ballot asking voters to increase the City’s millage rate from 10 mills to 14 mills.

This proposed increase would help pay the cost for repairs and maintenance. Current city streets are in need of more than $72 Million in repairs, and City right-of-way infrastructure, such as street lighting, require annual maintenance and upkeep.

The public will be given the opportunity to voice their opinion about the proposal at the City Commission meeting on Tuesday, June 24, 2014 at 5:30 p.m. at City Hall, 933 Terrace Street, Muskegon, MI 49440.  Residents are encouraged to attend.
