GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) - You have a chance to let Grand Rapids city commissioners know what you think about the taxes you pay, and how those dollars are spent.
Commissioners have scheduled a public hearing on the City's proposed $328 million budget for 2013-2014.
City Charter requires the budget to be in place by July 1.
The public hearing on both the budget and the City's property tax rates is set for June 11 during the commission's Night Out meeting at 7 p.m. at Eastern Avenue Christian Reform Church.
City officials say the average homeowner's tax bill will be $364 in the next fiscal year, which is down an average of $8, due to a decline in property values.
The average taxable value of a home in Grand Rapids is less than $45,000.
