FLINT, Mich.—The City of Flint Service Center opened public on Wednesday, January 17, 2024, with regular hours of operation Wednesday through Friday, 10 a.m. – 6 p.m. and Saturday, 10 a.m. – 2 p.m.

The new satellite location at 4805 Clio Rd. will make essential municipal services and resources more accessible for residents with both drive-thru and walkup service options.

Flint Mayor Sheldon Neeley and local partners will host a ribbon cutting on Wednesday, January 24, at 9 a.m. to celebrate the grand opening. The event is open to the public and residents are encouraged to come visit the new location.

The satellite center also has ample space for community partners to provide additional services to residents. On January 25 from 10 a.m. -1 p.m., the Genesee County Health Department will be onsite to provide free COVID-19 and Flu vaccines.

“This new service center is a crucial step in enhancing community access to essential services, directly addressing challenges faced by many of our residents, especially seniors and those with disabilities,”  Neeley said. “This center is not just about providing services; it’s about making those services more accessible and responsive to the needs of every resident. Today marks a landmark achievement for residents and I look forward to seeing all the positive benefits the new satellite service center brings to our community.”

The satellite service center includes walk-in options as well as a user-friendly drive-thru to better meet residents’ accessibility needs. Residents will have the option to stay in their vehicles for services such as bill payments through the tube system, ensuring efficiency and safety.

Customer service representatives, public health navigators and police officers will be available on-site for residents to share concerns, report crimes and receive public health support and resources. Hundreds of Genesee County residents die each year from overdoses. The city’s new service center will provide residents with access to free Narcan and fentanyl testing strips, supporting Flint’s ongoing efforts to combat the opioid crisis and support those battling addiction.
