Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder's administration has a goal of creating 1,000 new jobs in Flint as a way of helping recover from the ongoing crisis sparked by lead in the city's water.
   The Detroit News reports officials in Snyder's administration discussed the jobs goal Friday in a meeting of the governor's Flint Water Inter-agency Task Force.
   Rich Baird, the governor's transformation manager, says the state is negotiating with two "major auto suppliers" about bringing jobs to the city. He told committee members that a non-disclosure agreement meant that he couldn't name the companies.
   Baird also says his team and Michigan Works! are working to identify 500 "workforce development jobs" designed to provide good-paying positions and remove obstacles in employment, such as not having access to transportation or child care.
