PONTIAC (AP) - A state-appointed emergency financial manager for the city of Pontiac has fired the city’s clerk, attorney and director of public works in what he says is realignment in City Hall.

The Oakland Press of Pontiac reports Lou Schimmel fired the department heads effective Friday. The changes are part of what Schimmel, who was appointed to the post in September by Republican Gov. Rick Snyder, says is an effort to put together his own team.

The clerk’s office is being merged with human resources and the law department is being outsourced.

An employee with United Water, which is contracted to manage the city’s wastewater treatment facilities, will run the public works department.

Schimmel was appointed to fill the post held for 14 months by Michael Stampfler.
