City employees in Flint are sending out water shut-off notices, to commercial properties. According to the Associated Press, Friday’s efforts follow months of work by the city to obtain payment on commercial water and sewer accounts with high outstanding balances. The effort is part of a state requirement to monitor and maintain water credits that are being provided amid Flint’s, lead-tainted water crisis. Flint says police officers will accompany those posting notices.
