Port Huron City Council


Port Huron City Council meets in regular session tonight and will take a look at making an election change, as allowed by the state, from the current odd years for municipal elections to even years.  Such a change could save taxpayers money by sharing services for an election with state and federal coffers. The city currently  is the sole source for funding local municipal elections.  A public hearing on the matter is to be held June 24th and then a simple majority vote by the council would allow for the change which would be effective the first of next year.  In other business, tonight City Engineer Robert Clegg will update the council on the street millage renewal request that will go before voters in November.  The 2-mill tax for ten years has twice been approved  and will take a charter amendment vote to do so again,  Officials say funds from the levy have been used to help resurface and reconstruct over 100-miles of streets and rehabilitated 3-bridges within the city. Tonight's meeting is set to begin at 7 p.m. at the Municipal Office Center.
