City of Flint Applauds Genesee County Board of Commissioners

Decision to Approve Court Consolidation


  



The City of Flint is pleased with the Genesee County Board of Commissioners decision to proceed with consolidation of the 67th and 68th District Courts into one, unified court.  Flint Emergency Manager Darnell Earley plans to approve the consolidation and an implementation plan by resolution in early 2015.


            The implementation plan will now be jointly developed by Genesee County and the City of Flint.  The effective date for implementation will be January 2, 2016. The City of Flint will work closely with Genesee County over the next year to ensure as smooth and seamless a transition as possible.


            “A consolidation of the 67th and 68th District Courts is a positive step toward sharing services and containing the costs of those services,” said Earley. “As we look at providing court services, the consolidation of these two courts into a combined court for the entire county makes the most sense and reflects best financial practices and best use of personnel and resources.”
