City manager keeps job: council takes no action

Posted: Updated:

LAWTON, Okla. Lawton's city manager Bryan Long will keep his job.

The council discussed Long's job performance for about an hour in executive session during a special meeting Wednesday at city hall, but then, took no action on his employment.

Councilman Jay Burk had called for the review, and said today there was never any intent to fire Long, but wanted to have the meeting to make sure the council and Long saw eye-to-eye going forward. That discussion followed the primary reason for the meeting, which was to formally approve the city's budget, and they did that. It's an $89,000,000 plan, which is virtually the same amount as last year's.
