During the 6 p.m. special meeting, officials will discuss language for a proposed millage rate request to be placed on the November 6 ballot. Last month, council members decided to maintain the city’s existing millage rate and ask voters to approve 3 mills, evenly split between the general fund and capital improvements.

With plans for a 115-unit apartment complex at the Maxfield Training Center site on the table, council members will also talk about finding “data driven solutions” for parking in the Warner/Thomas/School Street area.

The 7 p.m. agenda includes:

  • a downward adjustment to water and sewer rates
  • approval of the November 6 ballot language
  • a proposal to update the city’s Master Plan
  • an extension request for the former 47th District Courthouse property agreement
  • appointment of Deputy City Clerk Mary Mullison to the position of City Clerk
  • approval of an agreement with DTE to convert city streetlights to LEDs, at a cost of  $136,470

You can view the full agendas and supporting materials on the city’s website.
