Where will the Federal Government money trough end? Have you ever noticed that pigs are always seeking food. Obviously, the Flint MI lead water catastrophe was a self-induced man make disaster. To save money, the Democrat controlled city made a decision to switch its water supply which effected older utility pipes. My call? Buck up Flint, raise taxes. Your fault. Oh my, you can't raise taxes, then seek county or state aid. Did you forget, they are also broke? My call is a Federal loan. Free has become a nasty word with taxpayers. We have FEMA for national disasters. Didn't Flint have insurance? Addendum: Flint, Michigan, will replace its crumbling pipes by 2020 to settle a lawsuit over its lead-contaminated water crisis.
Under a settlement agreement filed in federal court Monday, the city will conduct the sweeping infrastructure project using state and federal funds. They've agreed to dig up services lines at 18,000 homes and replace lines made of lead and galvanized steel.
