Flint, MI — Flint City Council meetings are being temporarily relocated again, this time to the Genesee County Administration Building at 1101 Beach St.
Council’s meetings through July were swapped to City Hall’s Dome Auditorium in order to accommodate renovations to the body’s normal chambers. However, officials have since decided the new space isn’t the best fit.
“The two main reasons for the change would be physical space and acoustics,” Flint’s City Clerk Davina Donahue shared in an email. “There just isn’t enough space in the Dome to comfortably fit all 9 council members, plus the clerk, attorney and other vital staff…And the sound quality of the room isn’t conducive to effective live or recorded audio.”
While many of council’s remaining meetings will take place in the county’s administration building, a few will still take place in the Dome Auditorium, located at 1101 S. Saginaw St.
All meetings held at the county building will occur in the Willard P. Harris Auditorium on the third floor.
