Historic Pic of the Week: Our recent parade photo prompted some questions about Old City Hall. Built in 1908 after a fire destroyed the previous structure, this version of City Hall was on the west side of Saginaw Street between 2nd and 3rd streets where the McCree complex now stands. This building served the city for 50 years, and was demolised in 1958 when the new civic complex was built a few blocks south. This lot was then the site of Montgomery Ward.

Historic Pic of the Week: On this date 1999 Buick City ceased production, ending 96 years of automobile manufacturing in Flint. When Buick was founded in 1903, Flint had a population of 13,000. By 1910 there were almost 40,000 residents, and Buick was the largest car maker in the country. #buick #flintmichigan #historicpicoftheweek

Waste provider in Flint adjusts schedule to better provide yard waste pickup

From the City of Flint:
The waste service provider for the City of Flint has struggled with staffing issues. The City has actively worked to try to remedy this situation through repeated interventions, including Mayor Sheldon Neeley dispatching Flint crews last month to haul off yard waste. The service provider continues to be behind in yard waste pickup. As an interim measure, the service provider will continue to provide trash pickup every week, but alternate between recycling pickup and yard waste pickup week to week.

Starting Monday, the service provider will be picking up yard waste throughout the City, but delay recycling pickup until the following week. The two services will continue to alternate to be picked up every other week. Trash will be picked up EVERY week.

You have to know much Leadership of the Flint DDA is being paid when they have to steal money from the proposed, Genesee Health System's Community Mental Health Millage that is up for a vote May 4th. This is not the first Millage they have stolen money from. I guess they can't get their own millage pasted, so the have to strong arm money of other's millage proposals. It's should be one of those things that make you go HMMMM?
If only your "news letter" were as good as your FB Page. Your Twitter is also severely lacking in content. What Civil Sucker is in charge of social media anyhow? Lazy for sure. Take out taxes and run!
So I'm at the flat lot, the terminal is out of paper, I was charged I have no receipt and I'm now running late for an appointment. I called the number on your page to speak to someone. You're not taking calls and your voicemail box is full. Are you serious right now?
Hello Flint community! ⚡️⚡️⚡️⚡️
Lang Constructors Inc. has partnered with Marshall Contracting Services to host our next food give away on 5/21/20 11am at U-Haul 3083 Miller Rd. Flint Mi 48507. Please share to get the word out.

Did you know your neighbors up in Byron are working hard to get the attention of Erin & Ben of HGTV‘s show ‘Hometown’? While we patiently wait for HGTV to announce the lucky winners, we’re working hard to show HGTV how many people would ‘like’ to see Byron featured in their next season!
Maybe someone at the DDA can explain to me why I pay $240 a month for parking and can't find a parking spot, but both the entry and exit gates hang wide open for people to park for free? It's happening more and more. You guys need to get it worked out.
