Watched Flint City Council meeting of August 24th and add one number 1 was to give over $9 million to Smith Village LLC to pay for the construction of the homes in Smith Village. Freeman advised the audience that the initial contract with Smith Village LLC was for the Developer Fee.

Couldn't Young sacrifice part of his development fee to pay for the earlier construction.[/b]

Next Wednesdays council is the one to watch. I am told Young had a meeting with the contractors last Wednesday and arrangements are being made to get them paid. They are supposed to be back on the job next Tuesday.

Allegations are the contractors started work to early. I find it hard to believe that experienced contractors would start work without a contract, a start date, and building permits. These three have been around too long for that. Then there is the department hold on the nearly $108,000 to Smith Village Construction LLC.

And what happened to the new contractors that Angela Brown and Lela Johnson said were being hired? This will be fun to see how this plays out/

Can't wait to see how this plays out

Went by Smith Village and there were no work crews on site. The Urban Builders sign was off the construction trailer. Kids on their way home from school were jumping over the dig site and if the city thinks that yellow caution tape is protecting them from liability, they are wrong. One adventurous boy was nearly in the hole itself.

How many contractors does it take to build Smith Village? I went to the trailer and read the building permits for the foundations. The owner was shown as the Genesee County Land Bank and the contractor was NSG Development and Builders, 3100 Telegraph Road. The permit numbers were PB 11134, PB11135,and PB 11136. The permits expire on 2/12/2012.

I could not find a corporate listing for NSG at this address, although there were some similar names that were expired. I also could not find a builders license for his company. Of course NSG could be an acronym.

Could this be the company that was hired by Metro?

OMG! YOU BEAT ME TO IT OOSL! I WAS DOING MY DUE DILIGENCE AND SEARCHED ONE MORE TIME. BUT WHEN I GOT TO FLINT TALK YOU WERE 8 HOURS AHEAD OF ME!


I CAN'T BELIEVE THIS GUY FILED THE INCORPORATION THE FIRST BUSINESS DAY AFTER WE PUT THE COMPANY NAME ON THE INTERNET. NO WONDER A SEARCH OF THE COMPANY PRODUCED NOTHING.

Beat me again. It was only a matter of time until lawsuits were filed. De Maria grew up in his father's construction company and would have been an awesome developer. I

Thanks! I will have the case on by tomorrow.

I saw that filing and no one has been served yet. However one week before it was initially filed, is when I started a thread on CIG and that allegedly the FBI was looking at their documents in DCED. I brought that thread forward rather than repeat it.

It appears that Flint is not using due diligence in their procurement practices and that could cost the city some serious monetary repayment.

The documents that I and Sam Sutton and others tried to FOIA from HUD included communications and emails between Flint and HUD regarding the NSP grants. This investigation and the lawsuit may be the reason HUD wanted outrageous sums of mone (between $1200 and $1400 ) to obtain this info.
