Saginaw Charter Amendments and Sales Tax Reauthorization

The City Charter is the city’s most important legal document – similar to a constitution for a state or a nation. The City Charter defines the organization, powers, functions, and essential procedures of the city government.

The Special Election will ask voters to accept or reject the recommended changes contained in Propositions A-Q (Proposition R is not related to the City Charter).

What is a sales and use tax?
