City rejects tax increase to save fire, police jobs

149 positions, 3 fire stations could be lost

Matthew Miller mrmiller@lsj.com

LANSING – By nine minutes after 10 o’clock Tuesday night, the mood in the AFL-CIO building had turned sullen. Volunteers silently boxed up half-eaten sheet cakes and packed away uneaten bags of chips while Mayor Virg Bernero, his deputy chief of staff Randy Hannan and Fire Chief Tom Cochran scrutinized a precinct-by-precinct list of how the vote had come in. Bernero, indeed everyone in the room, had thrown their energies behind a ballot measure that would have allowed the City Council to pass a sizeable property tax increase and saved dozens of police and fire jobs and two fire stations in the process. By a margin of less than five percentage points, the voters said no. An extra 602 yes votes would have made the difference. “ As much as anything, it’s a referendum on the economy,” Bernero said. “I

was hoping it would be a referendum on the city and the quality of life. People are scared. They see prices going up.” The failure of the proposal means the budget proposed by Bernero in March, which closes an anticipated $20million deficit through cuts alone, likely will stand. In that budget, the Police Department would lose 78 of its 326 positions, among them 24 patrol officers, four sergeants, 11 detectives and special operations officers, and the four officers in city high schools. Three of the city’s eight fire stations could close. The Fire Department would shed 71 of its 225 positions. The city would have no money to repair local streets. John Pollard, a regular at City Council meetings, spent Tuesday standing on street corners around the city with a sign urging people to vote no. “No one is against the police. No one is against the Fire Department. We all appreciate everything they do,” he said later that evening, after the final results were in. See ELECTION, Page 2

Library offers digital reading, building with bricks

A

pril 2011 marked the 150th anniversary of the start of the American Civil War. “The War Between the States” continues to be one of the most studied wars in our nation’s history. Its sesquicentennial has sparked renewed interest for genealogists as well as historians. You may be curious if any of your ancestors fought in the Civil War. It is easier to search for a Civil War soldier than you might think. A great place to start is the Capital Area District Library. Our Web site offers the library edition of Ancestry.com, which is free to use in the library. For tips on searching Ancestry.com and other online databases, check out our genealogy page: from cadl.org,

Election Continued from Page 2

“This issue, more than anything else, was about the pocketbook.” The ballot issue wouldn’t have raised any money in its own right. Rather, it would have lifted the cap on the city’s taxing authority imposed by the 1978 Headlee Amendment, taking it from 19.16 mills to 20 for the next five years.

GUEST COLUMN Peg Mawby click on Research Tools in the left side menu, then choose genealogy from the list. It does take some patience and sometimes you will need to rethink your search strategy, but it can be an exciting and interesting hobby. Using Ancestry, I discovered that three out of four of my Civil War soldier’s older brothers also served in the war and were in battles at Shiloh, Corinth and Stone’s River.

at regional cooperation. “We understand the tough situation that the city is in, but we still feel the opportunity is now to make some bold decisions,” he said Tuesday night. “They’re going to be tough. They’re going to be painful, but there are some opportunities for some shared services, there are some opportunities for regionalism.”

Property tax hike

That would have allowed the City Council to go forward with a plan to raise the property tax rate from 15.44 mills to 19.44, an increase of $4 for every $1,000 of a property’s taxable value. Even with the increase, the city said that most property owners wouldn’t have seen their tax bills go up from last year. Falling property values would have offset the increase for twothirds of the city’s homeowners, the city said. Like many of his fellow firefighters, Eric Weber took time over the past few weeks to knock on doors around the city. The police and fire unions funded a campaign called

Fortunately, I’m in charge. Is arthritis keeping you from living the life you want? Then take charge with moderate physical activity. Sure, it’s not easy, but studies show that getting your heart rate up and keeping it up, at least 30 minutes a day, 5 days a week, helps reduce the pain and stiffness from arthritis. It also improves your mood. But it’s more than just staying busy, so pick an activity like walking, biking, or swimming — whatever works for you — and you’ll notice a difference in just 4 to 6 weeks. Whether you try 30 minutes a day at one time, or 10 minutes at a time, 3 times a day, it all adds up to feeling better.

10 LANSING SCHOOL BUDGET CRISIS

Wallace recommends Wainwright stay open

Kathleen Lavey klavey@lsj.com

LANSING — Superintendent T.C. Wal-

lace Jr. last Thursday recommended that the school board drop plans to close Wainwright Elementary or move Wexford’s Montessori magnet program into Dwight Rich Middle School. “At the end of the day, we simply have run out of time to do a quality job of right-sizing,” Wallace said. Wallace “I’m going to be proposing to the board that we step back, reflect, and that we take some time to develop a plan that is much more comprehensive.”

Parent pleased

Lee Halbin, parent of a Wexford firstgrader, said he was pleased with the news. “I would have taken my child out of the Lansing School District,” he said. Faced with a $25 million deficit for the 2011-12 school year, the school board has spent weeks discussing possible school closings. It has voted to close Woodcreek Elementary and consolidate its students into an application-only, kindergarten- through eighth-grade science and math academy based at Dwight Rich. It also voted last week to close the Harley Franks Early Childhood Center and move its programs into other elementary buildings. That will save about

“I’m going to be proposing to the board that we step back, reflect, and that we take some time to develop a plan that is much more comprehensive.”

saturday 10-6, sunday 10-5

— Lansing School Superintendent Wallace

$100,000 to $150,000, Wallace said. On April 12, district administrators presented a plan to close Bingham Elementary and Otto Middle School, which would have saved about $1.6 million a year. After meetings with families and neighborhood leaders at each school, the board voted last week not to close either one. Board members hatched the plan to close Wainwright and move the Wexford program. A meeting was held at Wainwright last Monday, but a meeting scheduled for Wednesday at Wexford was cancelled after Wallace and board President Shirley Rodgers discussed the issues.

Time line needed

Wallace said he and Rodgers agreed that at this point it would be better to create a time line for developing a comprehensive plan to restructure and reconfigure schools, to be implemented in the fall of 2012. “The school closing process is done for this year. That is going to be my recommendation,” Wallace said.
