Grand Rapids budget

Dustin Dwyer / Michigan Radio

Grand Rapids city commissioners are expected to vote on the city’s $553 million budget at tonight’s meeting.

The budget calls for hiring an additional 26 staff. That includes two new police officers and other support staff for the department.

The city will increase spending on parks and road improvements, but still sock away a few million dollars for its rainy day fund.
