The city of Flint and Genesee County will remain under a state declaration of emergency for the next four months.

The extension was requested by Gov. Rick Snyder, and now coincides with the federal declarations in effect until August 14.

“The approval of the emergency extension further demonstrates the state is committed to continue working with the city to provide strong support and continue drawing on all resources available to support Flint residents during the city’s recovery,” Snyder said.

The existing declaration was set to expire on April 14.
