The Flint city council is expected to consider a plan tonight that may lead the city out from under state oversight.

Flint has had a series of state appointed Emergency Managers, dating back to 2002 under Governor Engler.

Darnell Earley is the current man in the job. He's outlined a seven- point plan to prepare the city to transition back to local control for the first time since 2011.

Earley’s plan includes addressing Flint’s deficit, legacy costs and strategic planning.

He’s asked the city council to adopt the plan. The council delayed a decision until this week.

Earley has said he’d like to see significant progress toward meeting each of his seven points by this fall.

The ultimate goal is set up the city so that the governor can appoint a Transition Advisory Board and begin the process to return Flint to local control.
