Governor meets with Flint mayor over water crisis
(WXYZ) - Flint Mayor Karen Weaver says the total cost to replace lead pipes and treat people with lead poisoning could cost more than $1 billion.
The mayor and Michigan Governor Rick Snyder say they will work as partners-- and they have a lot of work ahead.
Today, the pair had a private meeting--and later a press conference to discuss the issue.
Snyder's handling of this crisis has been called an obscene failure. He just recently apologized and finally declared this an emergency.
Two state officials have resigned. It was a state-appointed emergency manager who ordered Flint to use the Flint River water instead of Detroit's water system in a cost-cutting move.
The river is more corrosive, causing lead to leach into the water going into homes and businesses.
