Flint Emergency Manager Darnell Earley is reviewing options for replacing two departing city council members according to MLive. In a news conference on Thursday, Earley said he wants individuals who "can come in and make a positive contribution to the work that has been done." Earley has not yet decided on whether to make short-term appointments directly, which would be done after consulting with the Mayor and City Council and is afforded to him under Public Act 436, or to allow council appointments in advance of an August election. Council members Sheldon Neeley and Bryant Nolden are leaving their council positions at the close of the year. Neeley was elected to the state House of Representative and Nolden was elected to the Genesee County Board of Commissioners. Council members were elected in 2013 for a four-year term, which in the case of Neeley and Nolden would leave three-full years to be filled.
