WHATS NEXT FOR FLINT?

Flint is on its third emergency manager this year, but Gov. Rick Snyder said there are still financial issues in the city that need to be worked out. [1] Has the battleground been prepared for a Flint Bankruptcy? How can the work be done in months. Are draconian changes in store? [trb]

WHY ARE WE NOT READY

The city is not yet ready to be without an emergency manager, Snyder said Monday, Oct. 21. [1]

It is logical to me that Governor Snyder fired Michael Brown the past Flint Emergency Manager and his State Treasurer Andy Dillion bringing in current Flint Emergency Manager Darnell Earley because his objective have not been met. Just how will Earley complete his job in months?

WHAT WORK IS YET TO BE DONE.

“There’s still work to be done in Flint,” Snyder said. “But I hope it’s a matter of months (for an emergency manager to be phased out[1]

WHAT DO WE DO WHEN SNYDER AND HIS EMERGENCY MANAGER QUIT RUNNING FLINT?

I ask often is Flint capable of electing leadership up to the job? The answer is yes, but good people  in political office need your help. Help by insisting that your representative make  the objective of the living document capable of change the “ NEW FLINT MASTER PLAN” a reality. Insist that your elected officials cause a ballot question for the election of a Flint Charter Commission.

SHOULD WE  REORGANIZE HOW OUR CITY IS RUN?

I suggest that you the real leaders of Flint commit to real long term change in Flint. Get active in Charter Revision.

“An elected charter revision commission would study the charter, propose changes and then the potential tweaks to the charter would be put to a vote, Kincaid said. The process would take a year and a half.” Flint Journal 09/22/13

“I think it’s time right now that we put a charter revision commission in and take a look at that,” Kincaid said. “If you look at what the charter revision commission did back in the 1970s – it lasted 30 years. For something that is going to take effect for the next 20 or 30 years, I think it’s something that you take the time, not just rush to judgment on.”

Flint Journal 09/22/13

I agree. [trb]

FLINT CHARTER REVISION,

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Home_Rule_Cities_Act_(Michigan)

The Home Rule City Act was enacted by the Michigan Legislature as Public Act 279 of 1909. This statute provides the framework by which a new city may become incorporated and provide for its own government by adopting a city charter. It also provides for the method by which an existing city may amend or revise its city charter.[Wikipedia]

DEMAND THAT  THE FLINT MASTER PLAN BE IMPLEMENTED  BY THE ELECTION OF A FLINT CHARTER COMMISSION. IT IS THE RESPONSIBLE THING TO DO.

The Flint Master Plan will be adopted with in 30 days. Then  the adoption of the City Zoning changes to operationalize part of the plan within 6 months. But how do we as citizens  put our  Flint Municipal Government on track to create  our IMAGE of Flint. I suggest election of a Charter Commission to make our local contract with the Citizens compatible with our objectives in the New Flint Master Plan.[trb]

A Master Plan is a policy document that provides a foundation for City decision-making on issues related to land use, development, community facilities, parks and open space, and much more.[3]

I suggest you attend the following.

I suggest that you consider joining the collective decentralized efforts to decide what’s next after adoption of the Flint Master Plan.

Lets get moving before the emergency manager leaves.
