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.
