Flint's Mayor Sheldon Neeley has doubled the reward for any information that will help the city catch these businesses that are dumping used tires all over Flint.

This goes to show you that we have people in our community that look at our neighborhoods as trash cans. The dilapidated houses are bad enough, but to think that a local business could be out here dumping tires all over the city makes me mad as hell.

Every indication is that unscrupulous tire businesses are using the City of Flint as their dumping ground. We need residents to join us in our fight against blight. Let’s fight back against all those who would treat our community like a garbage can,” said Mayor Neeley.

 

According to a news release, Mayor Neeley announced last year that the City of Flint would launch an innovative partnership with CrimeStoppers to help fight illegal dumping in the City by offering rewards up to $1,000 for tips that lead to the arrest of anyone illegally dumping in the City of Flint.
