Flint City Council Stand Their Ground on State’s Water Proposal [VIDEO]

During a City Council agenda meeting on Friday, June 23, 2017, the Flint City Council responded to what they termed a threat from the State of Michigan’s Department of Environmental Quality (MDEQ).

In a letter to the council, MDEQ gave the council until Monday, June 26, 2017 to agree with its proposal for a permanent water source or offer another reasonable alternative. The City Council voted to postpone a vote on the offer from the MDEQ.

At the regular City Council meeting Monday, June 26, 2017, City Council affirmed their position and did not approve the State’s proposal, nor did they approve an alternative plan for a permanent water source. One major concern the Council has surrounding the proposal is the length of the contract – 30 years – and the lack of information as to what the cost to the citizens will be during the term of the contract.

There was no clear indication of what, when, or how the State of Michigan will respond. The next City Council meeting is scheduled for July 11, 2017.
