In this special Richard Piet Show series, the spotlight is shined on the Village of Vicksburg, Michigan. Just a few short years ago, the village was facing significant financial problems and on the brink of a state-appointed emergency manager. But, with a new team and a straightforward approach to solving its problems, the village lowered its tax rate and is the focus of redevelopment, new investment and new life.
In this Vicksburg Visit, former state Senator Margaret O’Brien and former Kalamazoo County Treasurer Mary Balkema talk about how Vicksburg went from financially troubled to thriving. They also discuss their recommendations for residents and businesses keeping an eye on the city’s finances.
