After announcing the appointment of an Emergency Manager for the City of Hamtramck, Governor Rick Snyder turned his attention to Flint. The governor announced that Mike Brown will replace Ed Kurtz who is retiring.

Brown had previously been appointed Emergency Manager under Public Act 4 of 2011, but became ineligible to serve in that capacity when the Act was suspended in August of 2012. He continued to serve as City Administrator under Ed Kurtz.

Brown will resume emergency manager duties on Thursday, July 4th,
