According to WILX-TV 10, Lansing is spending about $8.5 million on roads in the next fiscal year.  The city estimates it needs around $20 million just to keep things from getting worse.

Lansing mayor Andy Schor says the city can't raise taxes any higher and it can't count on getting more money from the state, leaving Lansing in a frustrating spot.

The mayor also said we are going to take the dollars we have, we are going to prioritize which roads that need to be fixed, we are going to maintain those roads, we are going to use a variety of solutions.

The city will be sinking more money into sidewalks too.  The budget approved last night includes 300,000 dollars for them.
