Are the rules for a Flint City Council meeting fixed or fluid? In the opinion of Councilman, Eric Mays 1st Ward, they seemed to change as the wind blows or at least with the desire of council President Kerry Nelson.

Mr. Mays insisted that without consistent rules articulated and enforced by the council, meetings would devolve into a chaotic shouting match of unfettered attacks on council members by their political opponents seeking to unseat or embarrass them.
