Flint moves to keep Detroit water amid recovery
Quote:
Flint Mayor Karen Weaver made her recommendation Tuesday, which marked a reversal from the city's original plan to detach from the Detroit-based water system and move to a new regional authority in the hopes of keeping a lid on spiraling costs.

The first-term mayor needed to reevaluate her original decision as a condition of receiving $100 million in federal funding to address the Flint water crisis.

The mayor's endorsement to stay with the Detroit-based Great Lakes Water Authority (GLWA) received backing of representatives from Genesee County, the competing Karegnondi Water Authority (KWA), Snyder's office and federal Environmental Protection Agency. The proposed deal will still need formal approvals from several city, state and federal government bodies, officials said.

"It was important that we took our time to get this right," Weaver told reporters at a news conference at Flint city hall.....


A deep dive into the source of Flint’s water crisis Tunnel vision By Curt Guyette

Quote:
On Wednesday, as this story was going to press, Flint Mayor Karen Weaver unexpectedly announced support for a plan to permanently stay with the Great Lakes Water Authority, which has been the city’s temporary water source since abandoning use of the Flint River 18 months ago. This new plan allows Flint to escape a controversial deal committing it to future use of Karegnondi pipeline water treated at the city’s costly, aging water plant. Here’s the story behind that ill-fated pipeline deal and its connection to Flint’s ongoing crisis…

On April 25, Flint's residents will mark a grim anniversary.

Three years ago, in an ill-fated attempt to save a few million dollars, state officials decided to draw the city's drinking water from the highly corrosive Flint River while the new Karegnondi pipeline connecting Genesee County to Lake Huron was being built.

The world now knows what happened after that.......


OK History does indeed play a part in the crises, part of which is the corruption that derailed earlier attempts at solving the regions problems repeating while under emergency management.

Quote:
.........The Karegnondi isn't the first time Flint tried to build a pipeline. As Wright points out in his testimony, the Flint River provided water to the city's residents and industry from the early 1900s up until the 1960s. At that point, it became clear that the river "could not supply sufficient drinking water to serve Flint's growing population and industries."

But that first attempt to build a pipeline of its own ran into some real trouble.

"Flint's efforts to build its own pipeline were stymied by corrupt officials," explains Wright. "The city initially planned a cross-country route for the pipeline and began to buy land along the route to install the pipeline. ... A handful of Flint officials had inside information about the route and bought up land along it, seeking to resell the land to the city at a dramatic markup. The corrupt scheme was uncovered, and trust in those running the project evaporated."

The filing of criminal charges effectively scuttled the plan.

"Detroit then stepped in, built its own pipeline and sold water to Flint," observes Wright. "Instead of owning its own system, Flint was forced to buy water from Detroit."

That part of the narrative is not disputed.

But then Wright makes an assertion that goes to the heart of the justification for building the Karegnondi.

From the 1960s on, claims Wright, "Detroit charged whatever Detroit felt like charging for drinking water, and our community was forced to pay whatever it cost."

The problem with that claim is that it ignores the reality of Michigan law. When it was still in the business of selling treated water to cities throughout southeast Michigan, Detroit, as is now the case with the GLWA, was required by state law to only charge municipalities what it cost to treat and deliver water to its customers.

In other words, the city was prohibited from using its water department to generate a profit from its suburban customers.

Hammer himself makes that point in a second piece of written testimony submitted to the MCRC at the end of 2016.

"In truth," explains Hammer, "DWSD (like most public utilities) is highly regulated and is forbidden to make a profit. DWSD is required by state law to charge wholesale prices to its municipal customers that reflect cost of delivery. Obviously, there can be disagreements as to how costs are defined and what rates are reasonable, but Mr. Wright, Flint, and Genesee County always retained the right to challenge DWSD rates in court if they were excessive or unjustified."

Instead of pursuing that option, Wright demonized Detroit............


So the city was put on the hook for a loan it couldn't afford because of its dire financial situation, to join a new water system that all other participating members could afford but not without Flints contribution.

Quote:
....."While the City of Flint's financial participating in the KWA pipeline was deemed indispensable, the same could not be said for the lives and well-being of its residents," Hammer concludes. "Flint lives could be and were gambled with.".....


the loan didnt cause state government to behave as it did in denying residents representation in matters that affect their own health and safety but without it there is no basis for switching water supplies.

Weaver wants to keep Detroit water after lead crisis

Quote:
.......The city is currently in a deal that requires about $7 million in annual payments to support the KWA, but Flint's treatment plant is not ready to handle the KWA's water supply.

In March, the state stopped support of the current supply from Detroit - leaving the city to pick up monthly payments of more than $1 million.

Essentially, Flint is currently paying for two water sources and only using one. Which Kincaid said is not sustainable.

"What is the cost going to be? I mean residents in this community pay the highest water bills in the country and we have to make sure we do everything we can to lower those costs," Kincaid said.........


to appreciate the current situation Mayor Weaver and the city of Flint are in, on the one side is the loan they shouldn't have been bound to in the first place that they couldn't afford and on the other Great Lakes Water Authority the board that runs Detroit's water system and represent suburban and private interests who are only in existence because of emergency management and Bankruptcy proceedings that they were vulnerable to because of things like white flight, red lining, segregation, and discrimination. boxed in between current and historic racism and current and historic injustice.

Interesting, and illuminates the depth of the decline that this country is undergoing. It's falling under the weight of its own bullshit, and some old rich white business type with a fake tan and a bad comb-over isn't going to fix that.

6 arrests at Flint town hall meeting on city’s water crisis

Quote:
FLINT — Police say six people were arrested for disorderly conduct or other reasons at a Flint church during a town hall meeting related to the city’s crisis with lead-tainted water.

Flint police Chief Tim Johnson had asked men arriving at House of Prayer Missionary Baptist Church on Thursday evening to remove their hats and warned all in attendance not to disrupt the meeting.

The Flint Journal reports officers stopped men wearing hats from entering and men who wouldn’t remove them were asked to leave. Arguments occurred and people who used profanity also were escorted from the church.House of Prayer Missionary Baptist Church.......


perhaps a mosque would have been a better choice for a town hall so others would understand the alienation and frustration felt by people trying to be a part of a city government function in a religious environment not of their choosing.

In Flint, Overdue Bills for Unsafe Water Could Lead to Foreclosures

Quote:
Following a water crisis that saw sky-high levels of lead contamination in Flint, Mich., many homes in the city still do not have access to safe tap water.

But that doesn’t mean they’re not being charged for it. And if they can’t pay in time, they may lose their homes.

The city has mailed 8,002 letters to residents in an effort to collect about $5.8 million in unpaid bills for water and sewer services. If homeowners do not pay by May 19, property liens are transferred to tax bills, which begins a process that can end with residents losing their homes unless they pay their outstanding bills before March 2018.

Flint generally sends these letters annually to property owners whose payments are at least six months late. But because Flint skipped this process in 2016, this year’s letters cover two years of past-due balances.

The letters came as a shock to some Flint homeowners who had already been struggling to deal with the public health crisis caused by contaminated water.

“While I understand this is the way that the law reads, we are in a totally different situation,” Melissa Mays, a Flint resident and activist, said in an interview with Fox 66 News, a local news affiliate. The city is asking her for $891.60 in overdue payments to avoid foreclosure...........



Flint residents warned they could lose their homes for unpaid water bills

Quote:
........"It is unfortunate that Gov. Snyder ended water credits for Flint families. I opposed this decision because Flint families deserve support from the state until there is confidence in the water system again."

Water shutoff warnings have flooded Flint residents' mailboxes for months. In March, the city warned 31 residents - as well as two apartment complexes - that the water would be shut off if outstanding bills were not paid immediately.........


the state ended aid for residents recently

I was fourteen the last time I was in Michigan. Even at the age of fourteen I could tell that the state was a lot more screwed down tight, and conservative than Colorado was where I grew up. And Colorado was fairly conservative.

Probably depends where you were. I'm sure you wouldn't have had that feeling in Ann Arbor, East Lansing or many of Detroit's northern suburbs. (I've lived in both.)

Yeah, most of western MI is pretty conservative, as is most of CO, outside of Denver/Boulder metro. One of my co-workers sent me a gift sub to the John Birch Society newsletter...which I found funny, since Birchers usually don't like 'my type.'

Flint charges chill state workers, Snyder adviser says


Quote:
........On June 14, Attorney General Bill Schuette charged DHHS Director Nick Lyon— along with a former Flint emergency manager, two Michigan Department of Environmental Quality officials and a Flint city official — with involuntary manslaughter for allegedly failing to act on warning signs of an outbreak of Legionnaire's Disease.

Eden Wells, the state's chief medical officer, was charged with obstruction of justice in the case.

Gov. Rick Snyder quickly announced he was standing by his top officials and, last Wednesday, senior Snyder adviser Rich Baird told about 260 state workers the charges were an "incredible overreach (that's) having an effect on our employees all the way down the chain." .

From Children's Protective Service workers deciding whether or not to remove a child from a home to inspectors deciding whether or not to close a bridge to engineers setting the speed limit on a highway curve, thousands of state employees are routinely required to make consequential decisions and are now "worried about what might happen if they make the wrong decision," Baird said. ......


sounds like something from the onion .com

in Flint a few people in state government took all the power and they were merciless, people cried out and they begged for help a bit of mercy, some justice, they stood on the streets and in town council meetings with jugs of dirty brown water, they and their kids sick, some of their neghbors even died, every step of the way the state fought against relief and justice. former Michigan Supreme court Justice weighs in on how to go forward.

Maura Corrigan: Nick Lyon, charged in Flint water crisis, has served state with honor

Quote:
As the former director of the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services and a former justice of the Michigan Supreme Court, I have a unique perspective on public policy, the law and service to the vulnerable people of Michigan. That’s why I am saddened and disheartened to hear of the charges Attorney General Bill Schuette has brought against MDHHS Director Nick Lyon..................

We can, predictably, hear a pin drop from the so-called prolife crowd.

Flint’s lead-poisoned water had a ‘horrifyingly large’ effect on fetal deaths, study finds - Whole Foods Post

Quote:
The fertility rate in Flint, Mich., dropped precipitously after the city decided to switch to lead-poisoned Flint River water in 2014, according to a new working paper.

That decline was primarily driven by what the authors call a “culling of the least healthy fetuses” resulting in a “horrifyingly large” increase in fetal deaths and miscarriages. The paper estimates that among the babies conceived from November 2013 through March 2015, “between 198 and 276 more children would have been born had Flint not enacted the switch in water,” write health economists Daniel Grossman of West Virginia University and David Slusky of Kansas University.

In April 2014, Flint decided to draw its public water supply from the Flint River, a temporary measure intended to save costs while the city worked on a permanent pipeline project to Lake Huron. Residents immediately began complaining about the odor and appearance of the water, but well into 2015 the city was still assuring residents that the water was safe to drink.


Eugenicists.

Gwyneth Paltrow Wants to Take Goop ‘in the Field,’ Maybe to Flint, Michigan - The Cut

Quote:
You’ve mentioned a TV show. Would it be an Oprah-style talk show?
Good morning! (Laughs, doing her best Oprah impression.) No, what we are thinking of doing is a TV show with the working title “The Radical Wellness Show.” I would be going into the field and talking to any number of doctors, scientists, civilians, people in crisis in Flint, Michigan, where there is something to uncover and confront about wellness. We would want it to feel more Vice-y in its vibe, but we’re just in the brainstorming phase. We signed on with Ben Silverman’s production company, Propagate, to help us formalize and pitch it.

Paltrow says she’s “a target in a way most entrepreneurs are not,” because she wants the Goop brand to be bigger than her Hollywood celebrity. But — and we’re just spitballing here —maybe it’s because she’s suggesting Goop will pivot to video in Flint, Michigan.

Riley: When will someone be charged with poisoning Flint's children?

Quote:
That terrible thud you just heard out of Flint was the other shoe dropping, the one that doctors predicted and parents feared.

The latest research study on the Flint water crisis has found that the city where children were poisoned by lead-laden water for nearly two years saw a monstrous increase in fetal deaths — 58% — and a heartbreaking decrease in pregnancies and fertility rates after April 2014............


yea where is the urgency consistent with protecting people from this kind of harm. it brings to mind kid rocks political speech villainizing people who are poor and have children . although there is a solution that would solve the ongoing danger, replacing the pipes that taint the water with lead, there is no real urgency to get it done.

Top Snyder aide: Governor knew about Legionnaires' in Flint earlier than he claimed

Quote:
Gov. Rick Snyder knew about Flint-area outbreaks of Legionnaires' disease in December 2015, the month before he said he found out, according to testimony Friday from one of his top aides.

Harvey Hollins III, Snyder's point man for the state's response to the Flint water crisis, revealed the information in a Flint courtroom. Hollins said he told Snyder in a phone call in December 2015, which contradicts what Snyder has said previously: that he first learned of instances of Legionnaires' disease in Flint in January 2016.

“As soon as I became aware of it, we held a press conference the next day,” Snyder said in a March 2016 interview before the U.S. House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform that was played in court.

The news conference was held on Jan. 13, 2016..............

Sounds like in that Snyder's alt-reality hours are 24 hours long.

If one were waiting on him to get something done, and he said, "in a minute" one would have time to go out and eat a pizza and drink some beer.

Wonder who's crying, now.

A Flint Official Was Just Charged with Involuntary Manslaughter in the City’s Water Crisis - MJ

Quote:
On Monday, the Michigan attorney general’s office announced that Dr. Eden Wells, who was the state’s chief medical officer, would be charged with involuntary manslaughter for her role in the Flint water crisis.

In June, she was charged with obstruction of justice after she allegedly attempted misled investigators and tried to stop an investigation into the crisis. She is the sixth Flint official to be charged with involuntary manslaughter. Five officials were charged in June, including Nick Lyon, Michigan’s Department of Health and Human Services director. His preliminary examination began this month.

In 2014, emergency city managers appointed by Republican Gov. Rick Snyder, switched the city’s water supply to the Flint River. Because the river had not been treated properly, the water began leaching lead from lead pipes outfitted in homes across the city. Doctors began reporting elevated lead levels in Flint children; lead poisoning can lead to a host of health problems.

...

Wells’ attorneys learned on Monday that there would be additional charges against their client. “I really can’t get into the details of it,” Flood told reporters, “but I think we’d be derelict if we didn’t charge her.”

Packing the supreme court with his attorneys.

Snyder names Chief Legal Counsel Beth Clement to Michigan Supreme Court

Quote:
Gov. Rick Snyder sent his chief legal counsel to the Michigan Supreme Court Friday, continuing his history of looking beyond Michigan's judiciary for such appointments.

"It's a personal loss for me," Snyder said of his appointment of Elizabeth (Beth) Clement, who has worked in his executive office since 2011. "I had a great legal counsel."

Clement, who will have to seek election to the court in 2018, will join the judicial branch after working in both the legislative and executive branches.

"She'll now complete the trifecta," Snyder said.........cut

........Clement was Snyder's fifth appointment to the high court.

Snyder's fourth appointment, of Justice Kurtis Wilder in May, made Snyder the first Michigan governor since election of justices began in 1850 to name a majority of justices to the court who all held their positions at the same time, according to Ballenger Report publisher William Ballenger......

normally these are elected positions


Snyder expected to name Chief Legal Counsel Beth Clement to Michigan Supreme Court

Quote:
.......Snyder has turned to his chief legal counsel for a court appointment previously, naming Michael Gadola to the Michigan Court of Appeals in 2014.

Clement's husband, Thomas Clement, was named general counsel to the Michigan Supreme Court in May 2016.......

Gov. Rick Snyder creates Public Health Advisory Council

Quote:
Gov. Rick Snyder on Monday created a new Public Health Advisory Council by issuing an executive order.

"The Public Health Advisory Commission laid the groundwork for a more responsive and cohesive public health system in Michigan. The new council will continue this important task by turning recommendations into actions and improving the state's response to public health threats," Snyder said in a press release.

"Our residents and their health should always come first and I'm confident this council will help improve the public health and safety of all Michiganders."

The council will be lead by Eden Wells, the state's chief medical executive. Wells is currently facing criminal charges as part of Attorney General Bill Schuette's probe into the Flint water crisis.

Wells said in a statement, "The creation of this new Public Health Advisory Council is a vital step forward for Michigan in preparing for and responding to emerging public health issues."

She will lead a 20-member council, which includes the directors of the Michigan Department of Agriculture and Rural Development; Michigan Department of Environmental Quality; Michigan Department of Health and Human Services; Michigan Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs; and State Police or the MSP's Emergency Management and Homeland Security Division...........
