The City of Flint is making progress but is still in "an on-going financial emergency" according to Emergency Manager Darnell Earley in his quarterly report to the state treasury.

ABC 12 says that Earley also talked about the future impact of retiree health care costs saying "if, by the end of FY17 the City of Flint does not receive some relief from retiree health care cost, either in the form of reduced city expenditures or additional revenues, it is unlikely that the city will be able to provide even the most basic level of city services."

Earley also said the city is not ready to transition back to local control at this time, but expects "the situation to become much clearer in the next six to nine months, given the plans and organizational changes that have been put in place."
