Benton Harbor Tax Recount Underway

The recount is underway of the Benton Harbor city income tax vote. It passed November 7 by just 21 votes. If that result is upheld, city residents would pay 1%, and non-residents who work in the city would pay 0.5%. We will update this story when the final numbers are available. The recount is being done at the Berrien County Courthouse.
