May is Love Your City Month in Flint

“When we come together to keep our community clean, we see positive impacts on mental health, public safety, and quality of life in Flint neighborhoods,” Mayor Sheldon Neeley said. “It’s especially important for us to create positive environments for our children, where they can play safely and dream big. I want to thank our partners and community members who are working hard to beautify Flint.”
