Meeting at Paladin Industries | 7/26/2014
I like to get out to our local businesses often and I had the great pleasure of meeting Larry Bell (pictured with me) of Paladin Industries. These folks do a wonderful job of supplying companies such as Herman Miller products which service the medical furniture industry and the ornate wood in luxury shifting knobs for autos. We also had a chance to discuss Proposal 1 with our state officials Sen. Tonya Schuitmaker and Rep. Ken Yonker.

Proposal 1 Webinar on YouTube | 7/17/2014

Resident Voters,
We have posted a recorded webinar that presents a neutral perspective on Proposal 1 which will be on the August 5th ballot.  A vote is required to amend the Michigan Constitution as this issue would convert a portion of the existing state use tax to a local tax which would be used to reimburse local units like Kentwood for lost personal property tax revenues if approved.  Kentwood receives approximately $3 million in personal property tax revenues per year.
