Vote YES on the Ypsilanti Water St. Millage

August 8, 2017

Why Vote Yes

The answer is simple, this millage is the most effective way to stabilize both our city budget and city services. Currently City Council is working on a budget that includes over $600,000 in cuts. The city’s budget is at a place where further cuts will fundamentally change, for the worse, how the city operates. Learn more about the millage >

“We cannot balance this budget with cuts. This city needs to increase revenue.”

—John Kaczer, a consultant with Municipal Analytics, giving a budget presentation to City Council on May 16, 2017.

This trend line, calculated without the millage, shows the city’s general fund balance quickly falling below the committed minimum balance

In contrast this trend line, with the millage in place, shows the general fund balance stabilizing over the next several years
