Changes are coming this week to the water this week for residents and businesses in the City of Flint.

The City of Flint will hold two informational meetings on the topic Thursday. The first, at 3 p.m. at Cafe Rhema in downtown Flint, will be for managers and owners of local restaurants where they can address concerns on the use of Flint River water. The second, in the Flint City Council chambers at 5:30 p.m., is for residents. That presentation will include a panel of city officials, a rep from the Genesee County Drain Commissioner's office and a rep from Raftelis Financial Consulting. Raftelis just completed a study on water and sewer rates and have proposed an increase to help improve the infrastructure.

The City of Flint is preparing to use Flint River water as its primary source as soon as Friday when its contract with Detroit for water expires.

What do you think about the changes coming and the possible rate increases?
