DALLAS – Flint, Michigan and its utility customers are on the verge of losing water credits that offered more than $40 million in payment relief to help cover city water payments as it recovered from it water contamination crisis.
On Wednesday, Gov. Rick Snyder reiterated his intent to stop the state water relief credits at the end of the month. The credit covers 20% of commercial water bill accounts and 65% for residential. The state also will end its $1.2 million in monthly funding assistance that helped the city cover its payments to the Great Lakes Water Authority which is currently providing city water.
