ABC 12 – WJRT – Flint, MI

The city of Flint has more than 23,000 outstanding warrants right now, but the new 'Fresh Start' program is looking to help those people out.

Most people wonder why there are so many outstanding warrants, but when you consider that some of them date back to the 70's, it starts to make a little more sense.

The 'Fresh Start' program is giving some of those people with warrants a chance to clear up their legal issues for good.  Right now the program is only open to residents in the 48501 and 48502 zip codes, but will include much of the city later.

Do you think that this is a good move by the city of Flint?
