There are plenty of examples of poor roadways and sidewalks in the City of Lansing. So many, in fact, that it's easy to see that state dollar funding for repairs simply isn't enough money to keep up with repairs. In 2011, Lansing voters approved a public safety millage to fund road repairs as well as the police and fire departments. Now it appears that Lansing voters will decide in November whether or not to renew the same millage, for the same amount of dollars.

WLNS.com reports that, Monday night, the Lansing City Council approved Mayor Virg Bernero's request to include the renewal question on the upcoming ballot. In another WLNS report from last week, the story explained that the property tax rate would continue to be about $200 per year for the owner of a $100,000 house.
