City Of Flint Loses $7M Genesee Towers Case 6-04-2010

The Michigan Supreme Court has denied hearing an appeal case from the city of Flint over a $7-million decision concerning the Genesee Towers.
City attorneys were fighting a 2008 court order that said the city had to take over the 19-story building located on the corner of First and Harrison streets. At the time, Flint said the property was too dangerous and decided to condemn it.
Before the towers were damaged by flooding in 2001, they were home to a radio station, an upscale restaurant and a bank.
Officials of the cash-strapped city will now have the troubling task of figuring out a way to shell out the $7 million to the buildings owners on top of a projected $8 million deficit.
Officials can ask the court to reconsider its decision not to hear the case.
