Saline City Council
Saline City Council met for a work session on Monday night to discuss a proposed parking analysis in the northwest quadrant of the downtown four corners area. Specifically, they were talking about the eastern half of the block encompassed by Michigan Avenue, North Ann Arbor Street, McKay Street and Lewis Street.
City Manager Campbell noted that for the first time in a few years, the city’s projected expenditures (for fiscal year 2017) exceed their revenues. The gap is $249,000. Reasons for lower revenue include an increase in state mandated personal property tax exemptions, and reduced state revenue sharing. New expenditures include a one-time cost for the Michigan Avenue Streetscape Project and the increased annual cost of fire protection.
