That includes charging residents for water they still cannot safely drink without a filter.
A local NBC affiliate reports that more than 8,000 Flint residents "are at risk of losing their homes to foreclosure if they don't pay up".
"I got scared, for probably the first time since this all started this actually scared me", Mays told the station, adding that she needs to pay almost $900 by May 19 to avoid a lien being placed on her property.
Huddleston didn't receive one of the 8,000 notices threatening to terminate her service because she has paid her shutoff notices each month, or the minimum amount the city requires to maintain service.
The city, however, is in a bind. If they don't pay up their back dated water bills, not only will their taps be shut off but they may lose their homes. Under a settlement agreement reached in March with the city's residents, the state is still obligated to provide free bottled water and to ensure that each home has a functioning water filter. To bring some relief, Gov. Rick Snyder approved a $30 million plan a year ago to reimburse residents for a portion of payments made since April 2014 on water used for drinking, bathing and cooking.
The liens threatened by the city, if implemented, represent the first step in making a claim on an individual's property. But that very same government, which serves one of the nation's poorest cities, is still pumping dirty water through the tap after receiving close scrutiny for having dangerously high levels of lead in their drinking water. Residents must purchase filters to reduce the lead in their water, and the city says it will be three more years before all of the city's lead pipes are replaced. "I understand the concerns that have been raised and I am working to see if any changes or something can be done to help those affected by this, especially given the extraordinary circumstances we have endured due to the water crisis".
"I told them there was no way I could pay this", said Huddleston of her January bill. The process was suspended past year "due to the water relief credits provided by the state".
Slammed for not protecting its residents, MI officials enacted a relief program.
The notices also mark a shift in state policy toward beleaguered Flint residents. The Environmental Protection Agency has said there's no known level of lead that is safe in drinking water.
Many decried Gov. Rick Snyder's decision to end the program, since the city still needs support. If residents put on notice don't pay, laws present in all 50 states allow city governments to move forward with foreclosure, as Huffington Post points out via the National Consumer Law Center.
But Sabuda argued that customers who have fallen behind in payments, whether from financial hardship or in protest of Flint's continued state of duress, need to pay up.
