Conyers asks President for help in Detroit

Rep. John Conyers (D-Michigan)

DETROIT (WKZO) -- President Obama has received a request from U.S. Rep John Conyers to step in and help the water shutoff problems in Detroit.

The water department is responsible for one-third of the city's 18-billion dollar debt. In May alone, 46-thousand late notices were sent to customers with water being shut off at 45-hundred homes. Conyers would like the President to allocate roughly 200-million dollars from Michigan's Hardest Hit Fund, which was created to give relief to the state following the recession.

Conyers told Obama that nobody in the United States should be without safe and clean water.
