Report illegal dumping

Mayor Neeley is asking for residents’ help to catch illegal dumpers in the city of Flint. Crime Stoppers continues to offer rewards of $250 to $1,000 for information that leads to the arrest of anyone illegally dumping in the City of Flint.

Mayor Neeley hopes that residents will keep an eye out for illegal dumping, creating a deterrent to anyone who would consider polluting Flint’s neighborhoods with their trash. Residents can anonymously report illegal dumping to Crime Stoppers by clicking the button below, or by calling 1-800-422-JAIL(5245).

Administrative Hearings Bureau (Blight Court)

The Administrative Hearings Bureau (Blight Court) works in conjunction with Neighborhood Safety Officers who issue tickets on behalf of the City of Flint for blight violations. The Blight Court has the ability to quickly and efficiently handle blight cases. The court has the ability to levy fines and fees on those who violate the city’s blight ordinances. It also has the authority to work with property owners to reduce fines for those who cooperate and are not repeat offenders.
