As you may remember, in November of 2014 voters in Ingham County approved a 0.5 mil levy ($3.2M/year) to support building new trails and restoring parks in our county. There will be a Public Meeting on Thursday, October 15, 2015 at 6:30PM in the Meridian Township Town Hall Room (see flyer) to give citizens an opportunity to provide input on how this money should be spent. This is one of six meetings to be held in various parts of the county and it is important that Meridian Township and other area citizens attend if they want to have a fair portion of our tax dollars spent on projects that benefit our part of the county. Other areas (the City of Lansing in particular) have plans that would absorb most if not all of the available funds so it is imperative that park and trail users in our area speak up and provide the Ingham County Trails and Parks Task Force with ideas and input so that county facilities in our area receive the upgrades and improvements they need.
