FLINT, MI (WNEM) -

Mayor Karen Weaver speaking out on the Notice of Intention to File Claim she filed with the State of Michigan and Governor Rick Snyder.

“To be perfectly honest I’m hoping I don’t have to go to court and sue them.”

Weaver says that Flint City Hall is running out of patience and that lawmakers in Lansing aren’t moving fast enough to release a financial revenue stream to the Vehicle City.

“We are hoping that state officials will continue to work with us to right the wrong that has happened with this man-made water disaster. But it would have been irresponsible not to take the proper actions to have every option available to us as we work to move Flint forward.”

Also during the Tuesday press conference the mayor addressed the latest water bills due out this month. Despite a state issued credit, and a charge for sewage, she believes people in Flint should not have to pay a cent until the water crisis is resolved.

“That’s one of the things we’ve been stressing with the state is, until this water situation is fixed, our residents should not have to pay for water they can’t use. So we’re going to continue to push on that.”

Weaver also made it very clear that she is the door-keeper of the City of Flint. And if she has to take the state to court she is prepared to do so.
