Members of Lansing Financial Health Team discuss report
In Lansing, city leaders and many others have begun digging into pages of new recommendations for addressing long-term city revenue shortfalls. Former mayor Dave Hollister led the 14-person effort that began last November. The blue-ribbon Financial Health Team divided its work into two areas: long-term costs and debt and a regional approach to cutting and streamlining.
Dave Hollister and MSU Professor Eric Scorsone, who studies municipal finance and is the author of the team’s final recommendations, discuss the details in the report.
