Flint Emergency Manager Darnell Earley has asked for the City Council to support his transition plan back to local control.

According to MLive, Earley said more work on the plan remains, but its a necessary step "as we seek to restore home rule order and local control over the next several months."

Flint Mayor Dayne Walling appeared at a news conference with Earley on Friday and said he strongly supports the plan but also acknowledged there are still opportunities for working through the details as the process moves forward.

The City Council tabled the vote after a nearly four-hour meeting on March 24th. They are scheduled to reconsider it in a meeting today. The seven-point plan deals with governance, legacy costs and a strategic plan for the future. The plan could also serve as a blueprint for the Transition Advisory Board if approved by Governor Snyder.
