(WJBK) - Gov. Snyder signed the $30 million budget supplemental Friday morning, which is reimbursing Flint residents with credits on their water bills for water used for drinking, cooking and bathing. You can watch a replay of the event here.
Gov. Snyder also answered questions at the event about recently-released emails that show two lawyers in his office urged top aides to switch Flint's water source back to Detroit's only a few months after the switch was made. You can read more about that here.
Flint residents will receive credits on their water bills for water they could not drink from the $30 million budget supplemental. For residents who have left the Flint water system, the credit will be applied first to outstanding water and sewer charges. If a credit remains, the customer will be issued a refund.
For customers who are behind on paying their water bills, unpaid charges for drinking, bathing and cooking as well as late fees will be dropped. Residents would need to set up a plan with the city to pay outstanding bills for the remainder of the water portion that is not covered under this plan, as well as sewer charges.
