Flint Emergency Manager putting together transition plan

State-appointed emergency manager Darnell Earley is putting together a plan to move financially troubled Flint toward an advisory board.
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.
