City to hold forum on road millage
Posted July 23, 2014
GROSSE POINTE CITY — On Aug. 5, Grosse Pointe City is asking voters to support a new local road improvement millage for 2.5 mills over the next 15 years, starting in 2015, to be dedicated exclusively to fixing deteriorating streets throughout the community.
The City will hold a public forum to explain the millage and respond to questions residents might have about this proposal starting at 7 p.m. Tuesday, July 29, inside City Council chambers at 17145 Maumee. Findings from City engineers say the condition of local streets has been on a steady decline over nearly the last decade, as the City has only been able to allocate about $250,000 annually toward road maintenance, and officials say the new millage would generate an estimated $825,000 each year to allow them to tackle repairs on City streets.
Anyone interested in learning more about the road millage can attend the forum or see additional information online at www.grossepointecity.org, or residents with questions can call (313) 885-5800 or send an email to email@example.com.
