Jackson lays off 15 employees due to stormwater fee

Lead in text: 
This comes as a result of a Michigan Court of Appeals decision that declared the city’s stormwater tax illegal.
JACKSON, MI - The city isn't just eliminating services anymore. Fifteen city of Jackson employees will lose their jobs after the Jackson City Council eliminated certain city services in the wake of a court decision that left Jackson without a stormwater utility and the revenue that comes with it.
