This week, bids are due on contracts to start replacing Flint’s lead service lines.
But there are concerns about what’s in the contracts.
Service lines are a prime source for lead leeching into the city’s drinking water. However, to date, the city of Flint has only unearthed 33 lead service lines.
Mayor Karen Weaver’s Fast Start program is set to get back up to speed this week. The city is using $2 million dollars from the state to pay for the next round of excavations.
