FLINT, Mich. (AP) – An official at an agency that manages the sale, rehabilitation and demolition of tax foreclosed homes in a Michigan county has resigned after an audio recording of him using a racial slur to describe black people was posted online.

Genesee County Land Bank Executive Director Michele Wildman tells MLive.com Monday that she has accepted the resignation of sales manager Phil Stair.

The newspaper reports that Stair can be heard in the recording blaming problems in the city of Flint on people who “don’t pay their bills.”

Stair is white. He was recorded by environmental activist Chelsea Lyons.

Online Genesee County District Court records show four civil default judgments totaling more than $28,000 entered against Philip Stair of Flint between 2004 and 2006.

A home telephone number for Stair is disconnected.
