Flint officials are spending the holidays finalizing a proposal that asks for help dealing with the city’s water crisis.

Flint Mayor Karen Weaver has been meeting with Genesee County officials to work out what needs to be part of the city’s emergency response plan.

“Sometimes we can’t put numbers to things.  But we can give estimates of what we believe it to be,” says Weaver. “So what we’re doing is identifying the resources that we need, the cost of those resources, and making sure we have a complete document to give.”

The Genesee County Commission is expected to hear a presentation on Flint’s emergency response plan January 4th.  

Eventually, it will be up to the governor to decide whether to ask the federal government for help with Flint’s water crisis.
