MIDLAND, MI (WNEM) -

Replacing Flint's infrastructure has been the focus of local politicians for the past few weeks.

And while progress is being made U.S. Rep. John Moolenaar said more needs to be done.

“Whether it’s the local level the state level the federal level each of us bears responsibility,” Moolenaar said.

The congressman said that information from all levels of government needs to be more readily available for the people affected by the crisis.

And as plans to fix the infrastructure are put into place, this needs be looked at on a grander scale.

“These are challenges many cities with aging infrastructure are going to face,” Moolenaar said. “We need to make sure we are taking the right steps to prevent this from ever happening again in the future.”

Moolenaar said more help is needed for the people as long term plans continue to be laid out.
