Council delayed taking action against Mayor Pro Tem Trudy Swanson after allegations surfaced last week of possible violations of the City Charter’s Code of Conduct. Mayor Paul Schreiber (Dem) said that Council should give Swanson adequate time for her to prepare for the hearing.

    Ypsilanti should look at ways to lower taxes and promote investment in the city rather than kill it with an income tax.

    What we need is a run down on the exemption that the city has put into the tax. I can see the city exempting elderly citizens and students as a way of smoothing the road ahead for the tax. As my family falls in neither of these categories I guess we will get to shoulder more of the burden.
