Council to review city manager's performance

LAWTON, Okla._ The city council is set to review the employment of City Manager Bryan Long in a special executive session June 18.

The council had previously scheduled the meeting to approve the 2015 city budget, and are expected to still do so, but Councilman Jay Burk requested an executive session be called to discuss Long's recent performance.

Long’s employment is coming under question on the heels of some discrepancies at recent council meetings, one of which was Long's disapproval of the original plan for the 2015 Capital Improvement Project. He also received angry reaction from the council after they learned about a delay in implementing changes within the Lawton Police Department. The council expressed their displeasure with Long for not being informed ahead of time.

City officials told 7NEWS the meeting is not intended to fire the manager, but it will hopefully establish a direction for how to proceed and monitor his performance in the coming months.
