Is it possible to do a fact finding mission on how other regions in usa cope with this problem? Michigan is not the only state with declining property values. When i moved here in oct 1977 plenty of funding was available . But the money was not being spent efficiently then. Taylor was cutting sports programs at public schools. Again let us the tax payers see what other.regions of comparable size spend their money on. How is it oakland county has never had a deficit? How about others counties in indiana ohio illinois that r comparable? Sometimes answes lie in how money is spent. County or cities.in ohio fast food is not taxed.michigan it is. Is there ever enough money available for these inflated pensions and salaries? Things have to be looked at realistically.
