Price in support of House Bill 5160The Senate Local Government and Elections Committee today heard testimony on a bill that would allow for a city, village or township to contract with a county treasurer for tax collection functions, announced the bill’s sponsor, state Rep. Amanda Price.“House Bill 5160 clarifies a statute and is a natural extension of our legislative duty to make government more efficient and effective,” said Price, R-Park Township. “This legislation will help local communities by consolidating services, saving money and reducing confusion for taxpayers, making life a little bit easier for Michigan residents.”Price said HB 5160 is a common-sense clarification that allows local units to voluntarily enter into tax collection agreements with the county, which will consolidate the tax collection to a single level and reduce confusion for homeowners by eliminating the need for duplicative services throughout a county.HB 5160 was approved by the Senate Committee on Local Government and Elections and now heads to the Senate floor for consideration.###PHOTO ADVISORY: State Rep.
