Flint Emergency Manager Darnell Earley submitted a report to the State of Michigan about the city's progress and plans going forward.
The document lays out plans for the mayor and city council, as well as city departments such as the attorney's office, city clerk, and police.
According to the report, the city is expected to hire a City Administrator by January of 2015.
Additionally, the city a request has been made of the State Treasurer to allow residents to vote on an income tax increase. The city expects the increase, if passed, to generate $7 million per year.
