LANSING (WKZO) -- Governor Snyder's office is not going to toss out the appointment of a new city administrator in Pontiac.

Former emergency manager Lou Schimmel appointed Joseph Sobota to the post on his last day on the job.  State Representative Tim Greimel complained to the governor's office that Sobota will have nearly all of the duties and powers that the emergency manager held, even with the city back under local control.

Pontiac had been run by a state-appointed emergency manager since 2009.
