Muskegon city commissioners leaning toward property tax hike

Muskegon city commissioners leaning toward property tax hike
 "Facing a $1.5 million deficit for the next fiscal year, Muskegon city commissioners Monday came to an apparent decision: They’ll cut the budget and approve a property tax increase.

Among the cuts: lifeguards at Pere Marquette Park, mid-block streetlights and $250,000 from the fire department’s budget, with details to be determined."

Again NO mention of reducing the big union contracts which account for 70-85% of the city budget.

Are ALL of the city of Muskegon residents fools?
