The upcoming election will give voters a chance to decide whether or not they’re willing to pay for the future plans of the Regional Transit Authority.
Voters in Wayne, Oakland, Macomb and Washtenaw Counties must approve or reject a $1.2 million-per-year increase on their property tax bills. For a house assessed at $100,000, that works out to $120 a year.
What’s at stake here? Does the proposed transit plan do enough?
Michael Ford, Chief Executive Officer of the Regional Transit Authority of Southeast Michigan, sat down with us today to talk about the plan and why he believes it deserves voters’ approval.
