Today, at approximately 6 pm, during the Special Affairs Committee, administration added on 3 appointments using Kellog Grant Funds. Without any time to read through these appointments and ask pertinent questions, we were asked to vote on these appointments today.

Add On #4 was the appointment of Aonie Gilcreast as the Chief Advisor and Outreach Development Liaison at $120,000 per year to continue at the will of the Mayor or until the expiration of funding under the Kellogg grant.

This appointment passed council (my vote was no). There was no time for public comment or opinion to be heard so Ill allow for it now. What are your thoughts on this appointment?

Calley campaign chief turns down Flint economic development job
Updated Feb 28, 9:33 PM; Posted Feb 28, 7:19 PM

By Oona Goodin-Smith ogoodins@mlive.com
FLINT, MI - The campaign director for Michigan Lt. Gov. Brian Calley's 2018 gubernatorial run has declined an offer to lead Flint's economic development team.

In a letter to Flint Mayor Karen Weaver on Wednesday, Feb. 28, Matt Gibb declined the recently-approved contract to serve as a consultant on the city's economic development team from March 2018 through March 2019 to instead focus on Calley's campaign.

"Since the action by your good city council recommending an offer of contract to my firm, there has been enough critical attention that I know such concurrent work would result in a detriment both to the City of Flint and myself," Gibb's letter said. "I have great respect for what you are accomplishing in the vision. In fact, I ask that upon the successful conclusion of my work on behalf of Lt. Governor Calley we might again engage in the opportunity of what my background and passion may bring to your work. Unfortunately, any effort will have to wait until that time."

Earlier in the day, the Better Jobs Stronger Families super PAC backing Calley's opponent, Attorney General Bill Schuette, distributed a press release calling on Calley to fire Gibb and claiming the campaign director would use his salary in Flint to subsidize his work on Calley's political campaign.


A Flint city spokesperson could not immediately be reached for comment on Gibb's departure.

On Monday, Feb. 26, the Flint City Council voted 5-1 to approve Gibb's consulting agreement with the city.


One-third of the $3 million granted to Flint to boost the city's economic development will go toward the six-figure salaries of three people including Mayor Karen Weaver's longtime volunteer adviser Aonie Gilcreast chosen to lead the charge.


The agreement was presented to the council for the first time during the meeting alongside contracts for Weaver's volunteer adviser, Aonie Gilcreast, and the Michigan Economic Development Corporation's Linette Phillips to lead the city in economic development opportunities.

Funded by a $2.9 million grant to Flint from the Kellogg Foundation to spur the city's economic development, Gibb would have received $12,500 per month from March 2018 through March 2019 for a total of $150,000, according to his consulting agreement.

He was expected to "assist the city in defining a pathway to a comprehensive plan," and provide strategic planning and development readiness, asset understanding of community engagement, economic development identity and program development, post-water crisis opportunities and workforce development and talent, according to the agreement.

According to the Oakland Press, Gibb left his post as Oakland County's deputy executive and economic director, at the beginning of this year for the private sector.



A $3 million grant from the W.K. Kellogg Foundation will allow the City of Flint to hire a economic development team.


Weaver announced plans to hire an economic development team with the Kellogg Foundation's $2,957,800 four-year grant to Flint during a press conference on Monday, Feb. 19.

"We need a plan in place to retain and attract more people and businesses to Flint," Weaver said. "Businesses that offer good paying jobs for our residents. Once we accomplish that, we will have stronger neighborhoods and stronger schools and then our population will grow. That is what Flint needs to really bounce back."




Contracts for Gilcreast, Phillips and the Kellogg Foundation's grant are slated to go before the Flint Receivership Transition Advisory Board for approval on Monday, March 5.

Soon after the Journal posted the story there was over 100 comments, most angry over the appointment of Gilcreast an calling the Weaver administration corrupt. Watch RTAB as i the past they approved appointments with no experience in governmental operations because Ferguson believed they could turnout to be exceptional choices. It didn't work that well with Sylvester Jones who was soon "over his head" and embroiled in divisive politics. (Is he with the the Kellogg Foundation as some suggest?)

Does Gilcreast still own his construction company? Could that represent a conflict of interest? The government has been said to have sealed the seizure gambling slips and money from an FBI raid on Gilcreast's house in the past.

So he owned the club Hollywood East. I took photos and wrote about an NAACP function there. In my estimation the place was a firetrap and lacked maintenance.

SECTION III FEDERAL AWARD FINDINGS AND QUESTIONED COSTS
2016-002 Material Weakness and Noncompliance Lack of Timely Implementation of Uniform Grant Guidance
Program information Community Development Block Grant Entitlement Grants Cluster, U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development
(HUD), CFDA #14.218; Emergency Shelter Grant, U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), CFDA #14.231; HOME Investment
Partnership Program, U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), CFDA #14.239
Specific Requirement The City should have written policies and procedures satisfying all applicable requirements as described in 2 CFR 200 as a
precondition to receive federal funds.
Criteria During 2015, HUD provided transition guidance concerning 2 CFR 200, which required grant agreements for some HUD programs (e.g.,
Community Development Block Grant, HOME Investment Partnerships, Emergency Solutions Grants) to incorporate the regulations of CFR part
200 for these grants as of December 26, 2014.
Condition The process undertaken by the City to implement Uniform Grant Guidance under 2 CFR 200, and the creation of revised written
procedures addressing the new requirements described by 2 CFR 200, were not provided.
Cause/Effect The City was unable to provide a complete manual of federal written procedures that met the requirements of 2 CFR 200. Although
the procurement policies required under Uniform Grant Guidance were not implemented, there was no formal documentation of this deferral as
required if the City was utilizing the optional two year extension. It was further noted that contracts established in vendor and subrecipient
relationship were not updated to include 2 CFR 200 requirements.
Recommendation We recommend that the City complete a manual that includes all policies and procedures required of the City by its funding
agents to ensure compliance with 2 CFR 200. We recommend the Authority seek HUDs advice on how to handle this noncompliance condition
given that the implementation of 2 CFR Part 200 did not occur as required.

GOVERNMENT AUDITING STANDARDS FINDINGS
2015-001, 2014-001 Finding Type Material Weakness Audit Adjustments
Criteria: Management should record all year-end closing entries in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) prior to the
start of the audit.
Condition: Adjusting journal entries were required in order to prepare the City's financial statements in accordance with GAAP. These entries related
to adjusting capital leases, fund balances, accounts receivable for various grants and related revenue, deferred grant revenue, inventory, capital
assets and related expenditures, water and sewer delinquent utility receivables, claims payable, and accrued interest.
Context: All of these entries relate to adjustments that are made once a year during the year-end closing process. These adjustments do not affect
the integrity of the day-to-day internal financial statements.
Cause: The City did not receive all information in a timely fashion prior to the commencement of the audit. This resulted in several of the
adjustments listed above. In addition, there was some oversight during review of the final trial balance that resulted in auditor-proposed
adjustments.
Effect: Auditor-proposed journal entries were recorded.
Current Year Status: RESOLVED
2015-002, 2014-002 Finding Type Material Weakness Capital Asset Maintenance
Criteria: The City should have a process in place in which all capital asset schedules, including additions and disposals, are reviewed and agreed to
support to ensure that the amounts recorded are correct. As a part of this process, the City should also review all expenditure accounts to ensure
that all additions have been properly identified and review all proceed accounts to ensure that all disposals have been recorded. Also, as the City
posts the entries for asset additions to the general ledger, they should ensure that the expense account is appropriately relieved in the full accrual
funds.
Condition: Assets were duplicated on different asset listings and asset costs were duplicated for additions.
Context: Auditor proposed capital asset schedules be re-worked to remove duplicates.

When Peter Dobrzeniecki (Peter D) was Flint's Director of Finance, he and Melody Purcell used a garage sale approach. This resulted in a HUD finding after he sold much of the HUD purchased office equipment. Did he really think HUD would not notice the downward spiral of office furniture when they were there frequently. Allegations that the furniture went to his friends were rampant.

Under Williamson, he attempted the same stunt. Luckily auditor Brian Ross of Dupuis and Ryden, who had to sort out this mess before, intervened. Even then Peter D was sending e-mails trying to get his hands on that furniture. Fortunately Cindy in Major grants made sure there was an accounting of HUD purchased furniture.

Sally Haywood

Qualified appointees: Would require that prior to any city position appointments are made, qualifications would need to be set forth in ordinance and appointees would be required to demonstrate that they have those qualifications.
(From the new charter)
No ordinance no demonstration of qualifications.Branch told Journal no interviews were needed because the Kellogg grant hirees were Appointees.
Like

Terry Bankert Appointees of Mayor, What is her limit


Sally Haywood with Weaver who knows?. She seems to me to be determined to function as an old time political boss and she makes up the rules as she goes..

Dorian Jackson Sally Haywood this grant has been in the works for several months (6 or so) and they knew they received it I would say weeks before Xmas.
By waiting to til the let minute to make the appointments put the pressure on council etc...
I do not think interviews would be changed anything. We have a very dysfunctional government and most on the council, like Flint in general, vote and make s statements to back who they "roll with" no matter if it's good for us or not"... the rest on there are he opposite and vote against everything proposed by the Mayor out of hate. I dont think any are truly compssionte or intelligent enough to make proper arguments and decisions.

BTW Linette stepped down from MEDC/TIA Community Ventures months ago, and many reports state or make it seem like she is still there.

Sidenote 2: We really have an economic development board and city advisor who owned the Hollywood East... and actually uses that as a claim to fame 😂😂😂

FLINT NEWS
Flint mayor's adviser, ex-county exec get six-figure salaries to boost city economy
Updated Feb 28, 7:26 PM; Posted Feb 27


By Oona Goodin-Smith ogoodins@mlive.com


The campaign director for Michigan Lt. Gov. Brian Calley's 2018 gubernatorial run has declined an offer to lead Flint's economic development team.


FLINT, MI - One-third of the $3 million granted to Flint to boost the city's economic development will go toward the six-figure salaries of three people - including Mayor Karen Weaver's longtime volunteer adviser Aonie Gilcreast - chosen to lead the charge.

In a tumultuous meeting lasting long into the night on Monday, Feb. 26, Flint City Council voted in favor of signing off on contracts for three individuals appointed by Weaver to spearhead the city's economic development team, including:

A one-year, $150,000 agreement to hire former Oakland County Deputy Executive Matthew Gibb as a team consultant;
A four-year $108,000 yearly salary without benefits for Michigan Economic Development Corporation Regional Manager Linette Phillips to serve as deputy director of the department;
A four-year $120,000 yearly salary with fringe benefits for Gilcreast to serve as Weaver's chief adviser and outreach development liaison.
Because they are appointees, Phillips and Gilcreast were chosen by the mayor without a formal interview process, acting City Administrator Steven Branch said during the council meeting.

The trio will work to develop a mission statement for the economic development team to present to the Kellogg Foundation, Weaver said.

The mayor announced plans to hire an economic development team with the Kellogg Foundation's $2,957,800 four-year grant to Flint during a press conference on Monday, Feb. 19.

"We need a plan in place to retain and attract more people and businesses to Flint," Weaver said. "Businesses that offer good paying jobs for our residents. Once we accomplish that, we will have stronger neighborhoods and stronger schools and then our population will grow. That is what Flint needs to really bounce back."



A $3 million grant from the W.K. Kellogg Foundation will allow the City of Flint to hire a economic development team.


But in order to secure the funds from the Kellogg Foundation, the council had to act quickly, the mayor's administration said.

Presenting the nine-member council with the grant and candidates' resumes during Monday night's council meeting, Weaver and City Attorney Angela Wheeler said time was of the essence in signing off on the contracts to fulfill the timelines of Flint's state-appointed Receivership Transition Advisory Board and the Kellogg Foundation.


Though Third Ward Councilman Santino Guerra pushed for a special meeting for the council to speak with each of the appointees, members of Flint's state-appointed financial oversight board needed a vote on the grant by the morning of Tuesday, Feb. 27, in order to consider approving the grant at the next RTAB meeting, scheduled for Monday, March 5, Wheeler said.

Although the state board has stepped back to allow Flint more financial freedom on its day-to-day finances, because the near-$3 million grant affects the city's budget, it must be approved by RTAB before going into effect, explained Michigan Treasury Spokesperson Ron Leix.

According to a spokesperson from the Battle Creek-based Kellogg Foundation, the organization has been in talks with Flint leaders since the city's water crisis about "the future of Flint and its economic recovery."

The goal of the $2.9 million grant is to "support building the organizational capacity of the city's staff to plan, design and implement the city's economic development recovery" over the next four years, the Kellogg spokesperson said.

Some council members said they felt rushed into the decision-making process and questioned why the contracts were not brought before the body in a committee meeting for more discussion.


"In order to feel comfortable, I need time - I need time before the meeting to look at this," said Ninth Ward Councilwoman Eva Worthing.

"It's not a matter of not being a team player - it's a matter of not being able to do my due diligence," added Fourth Ward Councilwoman Kate Fields.

But others on the council railed against the scrutiny of Weaver's choices.

"This is the mayor's appointment - I mean, who am I to have anything to do with this?" said Fifth Ward Councilwoman Jerri Winfrey-Carter. "This is not coming out of the general fund, so I think ... we need to move forward and appoint Mr. Gilcreast for this appointment."

Second Ward Councilman Maurice Davis echoed his colleague's sentiments.

"I can't believe this," Davis said. "How could y'all seek out economic development department and then all we're gonna do is hash and back and forth between us and knock down everything y'all send our way, but yet we act like we want to get the city out the predicament we in. The people up here is acting like the mayor actually did something bad. The grant was a beautiful thing that they done."

Monday was not the first time Weaver has sought to pay Gilcreast, who has served as an unpaid volunteer adviser to the mayor since she was elected in 2015 and frequently represents the city in high-profile meetings.


Documents obtained by MLive-The Flint Journal in early 2017 showed the city drafted a professional service agreement and attempted to secure state funds for a salary and benefit package for Gilcreast as chief adviser totaling $120,000 per year.



A series of emails, letters and a professional service agreement showed Weaver had plans to hire Aonie Gilcreast with an annual salary of more than $100,000 plus benefits with funds from the state, according to documents secured by The Flint Journal from a Freedom of Information Act request.


In February 2016, Weaver helped to establish a nontaxable "Caring for Flint" 527 fund with limited disclosure requirements to help build capacity in city hall during Flint's lead-in-water crisis and help fund Gilcreast's salary.



"We knew we had a lot of needs," Flint Mayor Karen Weaver said of the decision to establish the fund. "We were trying to get those addressed."


According to his contract with the city to begin Monday, March 5, Gilcreast - a former business entrepreneur, according to his resume submitted to council - will be paid at a $57.69 hourly rate, totaling a $120,000 yearly salary, and is responsible to "collaborate with residents, stakeholders and other partners to identify issues and develop strategies to facilitate partnerships among community organizations, businesses, etc., and report directly to the mayor."

He will also receive Level 23 city benefits, including health care coverage, dental insurance, life insurance, personal time off, and is eligible to participate in the City of Flint Hybrid Pension Plan, according to his contract.


Phillips, who has worked for the Michigan Economic Development Corporation since February 2012, will receive a $51.92 hourly rate in Flint, totaling $108,000 per year, according to her contract.

As deputy director of economic development, Phillips will be responsible to "direct, manage, supervise and coordinates the activities and operations of the economic development, including developing programs and activities to attract and retain businesses for the city, coordinate assigned activities with other divisions, departments and outside agencies."

Per the contract, as long as Phillips maintains separate insurance and does not perform private work during her hours employed with the city of Flint, she will also be permitted to maintain her West Bloomfield-based business, Project Concepts LLC, which "works with companies organizations and community to provide business development services, documentation and partnerships," according to her resume submitted to council.

Gibb is currently the campaign director for 2018 gubernatorial candidate and current Lt. Gov. Brian Calley, according to an announcement in the Oakland Press from earlier this month.

In Flint, Gibb will be paid $12,500 per month from March 2018 through March 2019 for a total of $150,000, according to his consulting agreement.


The Lake Orion resident is expected to "assist the city in defining a pathway to a comprehensive plan," according to his agreement and will provide strategic planning and development readiness, asset understanding of community engagement, economic development identity and program development, post-water crisis opportunities and workforce development and talent.

According to the Oakland Press, Gibb left his post as Oakland County's deputy executive and economic director, at the beginning of this year for the private sector.

All three contracts and approval of the Kellogg Foundation's grant are slated to go before the RTAB on Monday, March 5.
