Flint Emergency Manager Reinstates Council Committee Meetings

Flint Emergency Manager Darnell Earley has reinstated city council committee meetings in what could be the first step in returning the city back to local power.

Jason Cooper, WFNT

The meetings began on Wednesday with a finance committee meeting and a public safety committee meeting. Earley sat to the side as a city council that has been powerless for the last two years began to learn about the current finances, a plan that Earley has put in place to get the city out of the deficit, and a public safety meeting that had Flint Police Chief James Tolbert discussing various crime fighting techniques.

It’s still not clear when the city will be turned back over to local officials but Earley said “it makes sense to transition into that (committee meetings) while the city is under emergency management to get them to the point where they can function as an elected body and provide the services that the taxpayers pay for.”
