As Gov. Rick Snyder was briefed during the weekly Flint water crisis coordinating meeting on Friday, many residents saw it as just another meeting.

Residents still relying on bottled  water and water filters are becoming impatient with the ongoing crisis and want more action as opposed to words of promise.

"I think we are seeing stuff get done and we got something done even today. I mean there were 44 recommendations from the task force, recommendation eight got completed today. And a number of others have been completed," Snyder said.

Snyder acknowledged the long road ahead.

With promises of funds being poured into Flint, many wonder where that money is. Much of the promised funds are still awaiting approval by Michigan lawmakers as they work on the state's budget.

"Well, I spoke to both people in the House and Senate and say the Flint piece of the budget continue on. if you look at the revenue recommendations, again, we still have growth in the state. Not as much as previously expected, so we're going through trying to scale back other investments. But I'm asking we continue with what I recommended for Flint," Snyder said.
