GM Investment in Lansing Now Up To City Council

Lansing City Councilmembers must approve deal for GM project

A critical vote could come as early as tonight to bring a multi-million dollar investment project to Lansing.

Members of the Lansing City Council are being asked to approve a tax incentive that would convince General Motors to build a 225-thousand square foot stamping plant at the site of the current Grand River Assembly Plant.  The new facility would augment the old.

Lansing Mayor Virg Bernaro is asking that Councilmembers, who have often butted heads with the mayor, to put their personal issues aside for the good of the community.  The project is said to create 65 jobs to start with more down the road and add much needed revenue to the city’s tax base.

The Grand River facility builds the automaker’s popular CTS and ATS Cadillac models.

While it’s expected that the council will see the benefits of the project, some members may want more time for consideration of the tax break.  Bernaro is already cautioning against wasting time in the decision process out of fear of losing the project.
