FLINT, Mich. (AP) - Flint has agreed to pay a golf cart company $69,500 to settle a lawsuit that said the city’s former state-appointed emergency manager shouldn’t have ended its contract.

The Flint Journal reports (https://bit.ly/1nrTeLk ) Pifer Inc. of Holly sued the city in 2013, saying Michael Brown violated the state constitution when he cancelled the city’s lease of 100 golf carts for its municipal golf courses.

Brown said at the time of the 2012 order that the contract was providing a financial disincentive for outside companies as the city sought contractors to take over operation of its courses. Flint now contracts with private and nonprofit groups to run golf operations.

Current emergency manager Darnell Earley signed a resolution last month authorizing settlement of the case involving Pifer.
