Why are water bills in Flint higher than anywhere else in Genesee County?
The Flint Journal and Mlive found water customers in Flint pay on average $140 a month for water and sewer service. That is tops in the county.
It’s also $35 a month more than Montrose, which is second-highest.
Not only is the cost high, but it looks as if it will only go up. The budget set out by Flint Emergency Manager Darnell Earley calls for a 6.5% increase in water and sewer rates.
