Michigan officials held their annual state revenue estimating conference in Lansing yesterday. The meeting is closely watched each year by  municipalities large and small who depend on a portion of state dollars to run their daily operations. East Lansing is one of those communities. The city enjoys a strong reputation in mid-Michigan for providing an array of services to its citizens but of course, that commitment comes with a price tag. With three new city council members now in place, East Lansing is developing its financial priorities for 2016.

One of those goals is the creation of a financial health team similar to what’s already in place in nearby Lansing.
