East Lansing City Council voted unanimously Monday night to put income tax on the August 7 ballot in hopes of relieving some of the city’s financial strain.

The City of East Lansing is in about $200 million dollars in debt- a shortfall blamed on state revenue sharing cuts and growing obligations to retirees.

The rain didn’t stop a sizable crowd from gathering outside in downtown East Lansing today to celebrate the progress being made on the Center City project. WKAR’s Katie Cook reports.
