City of Lansing watchdog shines light on individual City Hall salaries

There's been plenty of buzz about the salaries and the hourly pay of Lansing City Hall employees.  However, our daily newspaper-the Lansing State Journal-has failed to shed any light on the facts.  Now comes a local man-Steve Harry-who got the information through a freedom of information request and then made it accessible to the public on the web.

Check this news story from and check his website where this info is released and check the other information he presents about local and state government.

What do you think?  Helpful?  Do we as taxpayers have a right to that information?
