It's an issue that could very well be on the November ballot for voters in Charlotte, Mich.

The city wants to an impose an income tax of one percent for residents and 0.5 percent for non-residents to help fund road repairs.

Nearly 63 percent of the city's roads are listed in "poor condition," according to city officials.

If passed, Charlotte would be joining the ranks of other Mid-Michigan cities including Lansing, Jackson, Albion and Battle Creek.

Tonight on News 10 at 5 we'll have more on just how much money the city anticipates it would bring in with such a tax and how local residents feel about it. is happy to provide a forum for commenting and discussion. Please respect and abide by the house rules:
