Bridgeport's city manager will be on the job for at least the next six years.
Kim Haws has one year remaining on his contract and on Monday night city council voted to extend it by five years. Haws has been in the position for 14 years. Three members on council formed a committee that has spent the last six months evaluating Haws' job performance. They gave him an excellent review.
Also at city council, the City of Bridgeport and the FBI teamed-up to keep our children safe.
May is National Missing Children's Month. The city will hold a Kid's Day on Tuesday, May 21, at 6 p.m. in the city park.
The FBI will be on hand to provide free fingerprinting. Parents can file the fingerprints to help authorities should their child ever come up missing. The Kids Day will also feature several other safety exhibits, prize giveaways and games for the kids.
Council also discussed plans for July 3 fireworks, which will be sponsored by 5 News and Magic 106.5.
