City officials presented information and answered questions about the 2013 Infrastructure Improvement Project — dubbed “Built to Last" — during a town hall meeting at Four Pointes Center for Successful Aging.
The $7.5 million millage authorization will be before city voters on Nov. 5. Its approval would continue the work of an infrastructure millage city voters approved six years ago. The owner of a home with a taxable value of $100,000 would pay an additional $100 a year.
The city stretched the previous $9 million bond into $15 million with grants to complete more infrastructure work.
Although progress has been made, City Finance Director Jim Bonamy said an engineering study found that between $35 million to $38 million worth of work still needs to be done.
"We're at a point where we've come to the end of the money from the first bond," he said.
Grand Haven Public Works Director Bill Hunter explained a series of scoring tests that identified which city streets have the highest priority of being fixed.
City officials said they will host another town hall meeting in October.
