Dr. Ed Montgomery, President Barack Obama's auto recovery chief, made a brief stop at Flint City Hall Friday, September 18, 2009. The auto recovery czar spent 2 hours meeting with Flint Mayor Dayne Walling. This was the first face to face meeting between the two.
There were many items of discussion on the agenda, including the proposed redevelopment of Buick City. Mayor Walling and Dr. Montgomery talked about ways the city and the federal government can work together to move the project to the next phase. Future development of the site is pending as environmental concerns are worked out.
Mayor Walling and Dr. Montgomery are scheduled to meet again later this month.
