Flint plans investigative hearing on grant money

FLINT, Mich. (AP) - Flint City Council is planning an investigative hearing on city grant spending after a $1.1 million federal energy grant was canceled.

The hearing is Tuesday. The Flint Journal reports that subpoenas were issued to 24 people, according to a list that it obtained.

The list includes Mayor Dayne Walling and other officials.

In an Oct. 27 letter to the city, the U.S. Department of Energy claimed "serious mismanagement and misuse" of the grant funds and demanded that nearly $215,000 of the money be repaid by the end of November. Flint officials have said they're appealing.

The hearing also will focus on two other federal grant categories, including Community Development Block Grants and Neighborhood Stabilization Program grants.
