An effort to roll back Flint’s recent spike in water and sewer rates has failed.
On Friday, a Genesee County Circuit Court judge dismissed a lawsuit against the city of Flint.
Flint's city council president sued, after the mayor, then later the state appointed emergency manger, increased city water and sewer rates. The increases effectively doubled the rate for city water customers
City leaders claim the rate increase was needed to pay for rising water system expenses.
