Last week was the deadline to submit a nomination for the upcoming mayoral election. Nine candidates are vying for the spot, including current Flint Mayor Dayne Walling. Rod and I had the pleasure of speaking with the mayor on Thursday and we asked him about the upcoming election.
Flint Mayor Dayne Walling was in the studio this morning getting ready to challenge me in another round of Battle of the Sexes. Before we had some fun, the mayor was kind enough to talk about the jail millage and ways they're trying to reduce crime in the city.
A news conference was held yesterday, where Argentine Township Police Chief Dan Allen announced he is going to run for Genesee County Sheriff. He is going to challenge Sheriff Pickell, who's been at the post since 1999.
Flint Mayor Dayne Walling stopped by the studio this morning for his monthly visit. The mayor talked about the city and all of the great things going on. We also like to have some fun with the mayor so he agreed to play Battle of the Sexes. I have beat him the last four times we've played and I did it again! Watch our challenge after the jump.
Is Flint facing another takeover by the state?
A municipal bankruptcy?
How is payroll going to be met tomorrow for city employees?
Speculation is rampant this week after the state put the brakes on the city's request to borrow $20 million to cover its deficits.
Without the loan, the city will have only about a half- million dollars in cash on hand. That's not nearly enough to meet payroll expenses of $1.5 million to $2 million every two weeks.
As the City of Flint moves forward with Genesee County on plans to build a water pipeline to Lake Huron, officials are also looking at the possibility of drawing water from the Flint River as an option.
Flint fire stations won't have to shut down this weekend, because the planned demotions of fire department supervisors was postponed. The mayor's office is going to take some time to review the situation, but it certainly isn't over yet.
The City of Flint is taking in far less money because of the large number of abandoned homes and decreased property taxes. Those are the prime culprits in the city now facing a deficit of nearly $17 million, according to the latest audit
