Starting in Flint where a new emergency financial manager will take control. It will be the first day on the job for former Saginaw City Manager Darnell Earley.
He's taking over for former Emergency Manager Mike Brown, who announced last month that he would step down.
Saginaw has named a new city manager who will replace Earley. Tim Morales has been appointed to the position on a interim basis.
Morales will also serve as the city's chief financial officer.
The changes take effect immediately.
