FLINT, Michigan — Flint's state-appointed emergency manager says the city is making financial progress but has work to do before returning to local control.

Darnell Earley spoke Thursday after state Treasury Department officials on Wednesday presented Flint officials with a plan for Earley's departure in April 2015. Earley says the governor could appoint another emergency manager next year if the city can't demonstrate its ability to govern itself in time.

Earley says it's too soon to speculate whether he might be part of a transition advisory board that the governor could appoint after an emergency manager. Gov. Rick Snyder appointed him in September 2013.

Mayor Dayne Walling says he supports the establishment of such a board. Councilman Sheldon Neeley says he disagrees because there is "no real end in sight" for state control.
