Posted on Monday, January 31, 2022 | News & Announcements

Wyoming, Michigan, January 31, 2022 - Beginning Wednesday, Feb. 2, the City will host its first of seven public meetings to provide information regarding the May 2022 ballot proposals.

The public meetings will be held in various community locations around the City including City Hall, Godwin Heights High School, Gezon Fire Station and more. Meetings will take place in the evenings and residents and community members can expect to hear from Mayor Jack Poll, Police Chief Kimberly Koster, City Manager Curtis Holt and others.

Residents, business owners and other community members can attend any of the meetings below:

  1. Feb. 2, 2022: City Hall, 7:00 p.m.
  2. Feb. 16, 2022: Senior Center, 7:00 p.m.
  3. March 2, 2022: Gezon Fire Station, 7:00 p.m.
  4. March 9, 2022: Del Mar Community Room, 7:00 p.m.
  5. March 15, 2022: Godwin Heights High School, 7:00 p.m.
  6. March 24, 2022: City Hall, 7:00 p.m.
  7. April 19, 2022: Kent District Library – Wyoming Branch, 6:00 p.m.

“It’s my goal to make sure every Wyoming voter has the information they need to vote on May 3,” Mayor Jack Poll said. “The public meetings are a chance for residents and community members to learn more about the need and have their questions answered.” 

In September, the Wyoming City Council took action to place two proposals on the May 2022 ballot that, if approved, would provide future funding to support critical public safety and parks needs, make the City more financially sustainable and minimize the overall tax burden of residents.

The first ballot proposal would allow the City to levy an income tax on residents, businesses and non-residents who work in Wyoming. The second ballot proposal would decrease the City of Wyoming property tax millage by more than half. Both proposals need to pass for either to go into effect.

If approved, the proposals would generate an additional $6 million in revenue each year, supporting significant investment to improve public safety and parks infrastructure for residents, businesses and visitors.
