Flint, MI — Flint City Councilman Eric Mays and Councilwoman Tonya Burns have called a special meeting to discuss the city’s remaining American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) funds.

The meeting will be held at 6 p.m. on Wednesday, June 28, 2023, in the Dome Auditorium of Flint City Hall.

According to a June 26 council press release, Mays’ and Burns’ reasoning for calling the meeting include:

  • To discuss the “unlawful” American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) Community Advisory Committee.
  • To discuss the estimated $30-$50 million dollars in unspent ARPA funds; and
  • Other general city business.

  1. This has gone on way too long. Residents have a right to know how ALL THE ARPA FUNDS were spent. Going from 30,000-50,000 at a time without approval is BS. Now there is only 30-50 million left! The Council and Mayor all need to be at this meeting and explain themselves. Not argue amongst themselves! This City is a business. Voted by the people for the people. Not for them.
