Flint’s emergency manager is drawing closer to picking a key appointee to help guide the city out from state oversight.

Flint has been run by an emergency manager for three years. But current emergency manager Darnell Earley’s tenure will end in April. 

Earley wants a city administrator to take over his role running the day-to-day city business. 

A national search drew more than two dozen applications. That number has been trimmed to five finalists and one alternate.

This week, the five finalists will have their final interviews with a panel selected by Earley.

“(The panel) will participate in the interview process and the assessment process, and will hopefully provide some consensus on a candidate to be selected by me,” Earley says.

He wants the new city administrator to be on the job at the end of January.
