Washtenaw County property owners have until next week to appeal their 2014 property assessment.
Assessments are one of the factors used to determine the taxable value of a property.
Catherine McClary is Washtenaw County's Treasurer. She says property values are starting to go up, and her office has made a brochure available to help peoperty owners decide whether they'd like to appeal their assessment.
The University of Michigan Credit Union is hosting a couple of workshops designed to steer people towards a life of meaning rather than a life of consumption this holiday season.
Washtenaw County Treasurer Catherine McClary is a co-sponsor of the "Tis The Season to Hang Onto Reason" workshops. She says the program provides alternative ways to celebrate the upcoming holidays, not based on consumerism.
The workshops are taught by Kathryn Greiner, Director of Education at the U-of-M Credit Union and a renowned speaker and budget guru.
