FLINT, MI (WNEM) -

It doesn't appear the city of Flint will be resuming total control of its affairs as soon as it thought.

On Tuesday the Receivership Transition Advisory Board decided to extend the city's probationary period through December. It was scheduled to be up at the end of August.

The RTAB was put in place by Gov. Rick Snyder to watch over the transition from emergency manager control to local city control.

Flint's transition has not been a smooth one with the city embroiled in controversies over the water crisis, as well as its trash service contract.

City Council President Kerry Nelson said he believes this is the RATB siding with the mayor because of the board's decisions that don't follow her agenda.

"Clearly there are friends on the RTAB who clearly siding with this administration and ignoring what the people of this city want," Nelson said.

He said he finds it interesting the RTAB didn't extend any type of probation extension to the mayor and he does plan on calling Snyder to address his concerns.
