By the end of this week, Flint residents might start receiving water and sewer bills again.

In February, Gov. Snyder signed a bill giving the city of Flint $30 million to reimburse city residents for water they couldn’t drink safely for the past few years.

Last month, the city of Flint stopped sending out water and sewer bills. 

The city was having trouble incorporating a state reimbursement that was expected to reduce bills by about two-thirds. The city has been testing changes to its database to add the credit. 

Residents will see a lump sum appear on their next bill and in future billings, until the state credit is exhausted.
