Lawton city manager's future being discussed

LAWTON, Okla._The future of Lawton's city manager is being debated at this moment at City Hall.

They convened in executive session at about 4:00 p.m., and the only item was the employment of City Manager Bryan Long. Long has been on paid leave since mid-April, after Mayor Fred Fitch announced that Long was the focus of an OSBI investigation.

The investigation is over and an OSBI spokesman said they were looking into accusations of a threat made by Long. They turned their findings over to the district attorney, who declined to file charges in the case.

We have a crew at City Hall awaiting the outcome of the session and we'll keep you posted.
