Flint Sticks to its Guns, Will Leave DWSD for New Water Authority

The Flint Journal is reporting (here) that the City of Flint has decided (again) to stick with its original decision to join the Karegnondi Water Authority, and leave DWSD. This decision comes after DWSD made a "second" best-and-final offer last week, which included a seat on the Board of Water Commissioners.

Comment: Whether this is really the end, or just another step in an on-going negotiation is anyone's guess.  My guess? Its not over yet. 

Update (5/2): Flint's EM confirmed the City's decision to leave DWSD yesterday at a news conference. The Flint Journal covered the event and reports here on the decision. 

Update (6/25): The Fling Journal reports (here) that a groundbreaking ceremony for the new pipeline will take place on Friday, June 28th at 10:00 a.m. at the corner of Fisher Road and M-25.
