Flint emergency manager calls council "obnoxious"

FLINT – Flint's state-appointed emergency manager says he didn't like what happened when City Council met to discuss a report about the city's future, so he's denied a request for a second meeting on the issue.

Darnell Earley on Wednesday turned down council's request to again discuss a report from the Flint Blue Ribbon Committee on Governance.

Earley says council members were "egregious, unfair and obnoxious" at the July 28 meeting. Council members during that meeting chastised the way Earley convened the Blue Ribbon Committee and lashed out at the committee's volunteer chairman.

Councilwoman Jacqueline Poplar tells The Flint Journal that Earley is off-target with his criticism.

Earley runs the city's affairs, including when City Council meets and what subjects are on its agenda. Video of the meeting is posted online.
