of Michigan's largest private landowners, will pay $128.5 million in 1991 property taxes to 1,378 governmental units, making it one of the state's top property-tax payers.
 Michigan's largest utility this week will begin paying counties, townships and cities the winter portion of its tax bill, a substantial portion of which directly supports education.

 "Consumers Power's local property tax payments throughout the Lower Peninsula constitute major financial support for Michigan's local school systems and community colleges," said Fred Buckman, the utility's president and chief executive officer. "Together with the positive economic impact of employee payrolls at our service centers and plants as well as our local business purchases, these property-tax payments demonstrate Consumers Power's investment in the future of Michigan," said Buckman.
