This week, a judge will consider whether the city of Flint may resume shutting off water to people who haven’t paid their bills.
In August, Genesee Circuit Judge Archie Hayman ordered the city of Flint to stop disconnecting delinquent water customers. The judge found the city had illegally increased rates in 2011 and directed the city to rollback the 35% increase.
Since September, Flint water customers have been paying the lower rate. But not everyone has been paying.
