Located just a short distance West of Flint and only moments from the 1-75/23 corridor allows the people of Flushing to enjoy the advantages of a metropolitan area, while residing in a small town atmosphere.

The City of Flushing is a stable community with quality residential neighborhoods, good schools, beautiful views of the Flint River, a historic and vibrant downtown, parks, and convenient freeway access. Annual events and festivals, such as the summer Fabulous 50's Festival and Christmas Candlewalk contribute to Flushing's "small town" sense of community.

The Flint River and related topography are the most important visual assets to the community. Spectacular views of the river valley and tranquility of the water create an identity unique to the region. The City is now preparing to take full advantage of this resource, especially in the downtown. The river's aesthetic opportunities include physical links to the river in the downtown area, along Main Street east of the Central Business District, and in Riverview Park along the River Walk path.

Water and Sewer Rates Minimize

The City of Flushing approved increased water and sewer rates for all residential and commercial customers. The rates will take effect July 1, 2015. Customers will experience these increases on their water and sewer bill after July 1, 2015.

The water rate increase was necessary due to the increased cost of water from the city’s supplier, City of Detroit. Since October 2, 2014, the City of Flushing has absorbed a 17% (81 cents per 748 gallons) increase for the cost of water from the City of Detroit. The City of Flushing is anticipating another 16% increase (76 cents per 748 gallons) for the cost of water in the coming months. Approximately, 70% of expenses in the City of Flushing’s Water Fund are associated with the cost of water purchased from the City of Detroit, through the Genesee County Drain Commissioner, Water and Waste Services Division. The City of Flushing’s Water Fund can no longer absorb these increases.

The sewer rate increase was necessary due to the increased costs in maintaining, updating and repairing the city’s waste water treatment plant, sewer collection system and pump stations. The last sewer rate increase was approved in 2011 and since that time the City of Flushing’s Sewer Fund has absorbed any and all cost increases.

Residents are able to make monthly payments to their water/sewer account through City Hall.

The new rates are as follows:

Water Readiness to Serve charge increase from $30.00 per quarter to $80.56 per quarter for all customers

Water usage charges decrease from $5.40 per 1000 gallons to $4.41 per 1000 gallons for all customers

Sewer Readiness to Serve charge increase from $22.59 per quarter to $41.04 per quarter for residential customers

Sewer usage charges decrease from $3.11 per 1000 gallons to $2.88 per 1000 gallons for all customers
