Public to get access to meeting on Flint's water system
Public to get access to meeting on Flint's water system Officials say a meeting that's planned to discuss Flint's water system will be open to the public after earlier being scheduled as an invitation-only event.
Organizers agreed to make the event open to the public after city and state officials were asked about the Jan. 11 meeting by the news organization.
Tiffany Brown, a spokeswoman for the state Department of Environmental Quality, says a livestream of the event was and is still planned so that everyone has access to the information that's presented.
The meeting comes as Flint continues to deal with a crisis with lead-tainted water. It's planned a day after a "Flint data summit" hosted by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
