Assessing Reform Forum Scheduled in Gaylord

Posted on August 6, 2018 by Dene Westbrook

State Treasurer Nick Khouri and the legislative sponsors for SB 1025 and HB 6049 are planning a series of “listening tour” forums this month to hear from local officials about ways to improve administration of property tax laws in Michigan.

Following introduction and an initial committee hearing on the reform proposal earlier this year, the Treasurer and legislative advocates announced their intention to continue working with the League and other local government organizations and relevant interest groups throughout the summer to try and address the feedback and concerns that have been raised with the initial proposal.

Three forums around the state are planned during the month of August, with the first scheduled to take place in Gaylord on Tuesday, August 14th. Two other forums are being planned for west and southeast Michigan later in the month.  We will share finalized details for these other meetings as soon as it is available.

Gaylord Meeting Details:
Date: August 14th
Time: 10 a.m.- Noon
Location: City Council Chambers, City of Gaylord, 305 East Main Street, Gaylord MI 49735

Local officials are encouraged to attend and offer their concerns and ideas for improvement of the bills or the tax valuation/administration process.  If you plan to attend, please contact Chris Hackbarth to coordinate comments and suggestions.
