This grant to the Genesee Area Focus Fund will provide funds to support public safety enforcement and traffic patrolling at the Back to the Bricks festival in downtown Flint this August. Public safety policing is an essential component of the success of the festival, which is anticipated to attract 500,000 exhibitors and festival goers, and contributes to the local economy. In previous years, the city of Flint has traditionally absorbed the cost of police and traffic control services for the event; however, in its present financial circumstance, the city is unable to provide these services free of charge in 2012.
