Kildee spoke to Flint City Council about federal money, city needs

U.S. Representative Dan Kildee spoke to the Flint City Council yesterday in order to discuss options for the city.

Kildee encouraged city officials to keep applying for federal safety funds in order to encourage more growth in Flint. He said that Flint should apply for additional funding from the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives to help reduce crime.

He also said that the city would benefit from a more "robust enforcement" of trade policies to support manufacturing.

Kildee also asked about what other needs the city might have. Kildee said that, "This will be a chance for me to let these folks know what's been happening in Washington and how it relates to Flint, but more importantly to get some input from them on what direction they think I should be taking"

Kildee is now headed back to Washington D.C.
