FLINT, Mich. (AP) — State-appointed emergency manager Darnell Earley is putting together a plan to move financially troubled Flint toward an advisory board.
The Flint Journal reports (http://bit.ly/1gAFHkz ) that Earley will present details of the plan Monday to the Flint City Council.
Earley told reporters Friday that the plan's seven points are deficit elimination, five-year financial forecast, governance, organization development, legacy costs, strategic planning and sustainability.
Earley said he doubts if Flint will be "ready" for a transition to an advisory board before the one-year anniversary of his appointment over the city's finances.
The board is a step toward returning control to local elected leaders.
Flint, about 50 miles northwest of Detroit, has been under state oversight since 2011. It is among a number of Michigan cities and public school districts with emergency managers.
